GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — Education specialists from the Greenville County School District on Thursday held a 30-minute question-and-answer live stream to field parents’ questions about the upcoming school year.
The district currently is offering two options for the 2020-2021 school year: virtual learning or traditional school. District leaders promise the virtual learning program provides stability: Dedicated teachers will teach students live each day on a set schedule.

The traditional option offers less certainty and details are still under review. Additionally, fluctuations in local case counts could impact students.
“Say the COVID-19 spread rate ramps up all of a sudden, there’s a sudden increase,” district spokesman Tim Waller said. “We may deem that it’s not safe for anyone to be in the schools. Therefore, they would temporarily have to leave the in-class setting and begin e-learning.”
