Tupelo Schools to Offer Hybrid Courses

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) — The Tupelo School District next school year will begin offering a few hybrid courses that blend both online and traditional classroom instruction.

The district’s school board Friday heard reports on plans to teach three classes next year that will have online components.

A local newspaper reports Tupelo Middle School will allow a small group of about 25 seventh graders to take Information and Communication Technology-1 as a hybrid online course. They will be able to complete most of their assignments independently through the online Canvas program, but will still have certain times they will need to work one-on-one with teachers at the school.

Meanwhile, freshmen and sophomore English classes at Tupelo High School will have a writing component offered through Plato Courseware, another online program.
