FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Indiana's largest school district will now have all of its students transition to virtual learning for the remainder of the month because of staffing issues.
On Monday, Fort Wayne Community Schools announced that beginning Tuesday all of its students will learn remotely through Nov. 30.
"All FWCS schools will be operating remotely Nov. 24-30 because of a severe staff shortage in our transportation department," FWCS said in a statement. "Elementary and middle school students will be bringing home their devices today."
Last week FWCS announced that its high school students will make the switch to virtual learning starting Monday "because they are most able to work independently and do not require childcare," according to Superintendant Mark Daniel.
