Roughly 900 students have chosen APS Online for learning, and nearly 20,000 return to their buildings for in-person instruction. Akron Public Schools is following every safety precaution to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment.

"Keeping students safe and healthy, while giving them the best education, is our priority," said Superintendent Christine Fowler Mack. She added, "We know the benefits of in-person learning and are striving to follow all protocols given us by recognized and respected health experts so we can eventually get all of our students back in the classroom."

Students began this week on Monday with grades 4-7 and 9-10 beginning the year. Yesterday saw grades 8, 11 and 12 start, and today the rest of our students in early learning and kindergarten through grade 3 had their first day of learning.
