Lilleck said the district’s goals will be focused on returning students to face-to-face instruction.
High school and middle school students in Orchard Park and Williamsville are headed back to school full time Monday.
A hearing on the merits of the requests concluded today, with much of the testimony centering on the different guidance for elementary and secondary schools.
A judge ordered Orchard Park and Williamsville school districts to offer full-time instruction on May 17 as long as Covid-19 transmissions continue to decrease.
While Justice Emilio Colaiacovo denied the request, he ordered a hearing May 7 to address the merits of the parents' arguments.
The fight to bring back all students five days a week amid the Covid-19 pandemic carried on Friday inside a downtown courtroom.
Judge Emilio Colaiacovo said he wants a decision from the state on what type of social distancing is recommended – 3 feet or 6 feet – by April 20.
