COLUMBIA - Columbia Public Schools held a work session Thursday morning.

The meeting began at 7:30 a.m. at the Aslin Administration Building.

This was the first CPS meeting since elementary students returned to in-person learning earlier this week. 

Superintendent Peter Stiepleman discussed the updated COVID-19 numbers and the potential for the middle school and high school students to return to in-person learning. 

The School Board would like to get an action item on the agenda for their November 9 meeting. The item would include a vote on when or if middle school and high school students would return to school. 

As of right now, middle school and high school students will continue to learn virtually.
