ESCONDIDO, Calif. (KGTV) -- The Escondido Union School District is choosing to start the new school year online, and the district is also pushing back its start date to August 25.

The decision was approved at the Board of Education meeting Thursday night.

The board also approved two hybrid learning options for when the school district is ready to resume in-person classes.

For grades kindergarten through 5th, the "Modified Classic" will provide students with four half-days on campus and one day of remote learning.

For grades 6th through 8th, the "Two-Day Hybrid" will provide students with two full days on campus and three days of remote learning.

EUSD does have plans to reopen its campuses by the end of September; however, the board and district said they would both continue to monitor the health conditions and make changes as needed.
