Some school districts in the Portland metro area are still figuring out the logistics of hybrid learning, while others are already offering the option.

On Monday, Feb. 22, sixth grade students in the Vancouver Public School District had their first day of in-person, hybrid school.

The largest district in the state, Portland Public Schools (PPS), plans to begin hybrid learning in April by phasing in students from kindergarten through fifth grade.

A survey asking PPS parents if they prefer distance learning or hybrid learning for their children was sent to families on Feb. 12. Parents have until Thursday, Feb. 25, to fill out a survey telling the district their preference. The district also has an FAQ resource for parents.

The Beaverton School District sent a message to parents on Feb. 22 that said it planned to start hybrid instruction on April 19 for middle and high school students. In the next few weeks, the district will ask families if they want to stay distance learning for the rest of the year or if they’d like to opt for hybrid learning instead.

Here's a look at where schools in the Portland metro area stand so far:
