MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — Rutherford County students will begin the second semester with in-person learning Mon., Jan. 11. Distance-learning students may continue doing so and any family who wishes to switch their children to distance-learning may still take that option by notifying their school.

School board members discussed how students would return for their second semester in Tues. night's meeting.

Director of Schools Bill Spurlock submitted a plan to the board to adopt a hybrid calendar for the first four weeks of the second semester - Jan. 11 through Feb. 5. The proposal recommended students attend school in-person every other day based on their last name.

But board members did not file a motion in favor of the proposal, thus it was not adopted.
