While some Northeast Dubois students will have to virtually learn, students who take CTE courses will be able to attend school for hands-on-learning.

This was approved last night at the Northeast Dubois School Corporation Monthly Board Meeting.

What this means is that if a student taking CTE courses feels comfortable, on days where they would normally be eLearning, they would have the opportunity to come to the school and work in a lab setting. Some CTE courses require a percentage of hands-on-learning.

If a student does not feel comfortable, they will remain to eLearn on the topic discussed, however they would not be learning hands-on in a lab setting.

Athletic attendance policy was also discussed at the meeting.

While the Dubois County Health Department has mandated that all sports only have essential personnel, parents, and siblings of the players present, the school wanted to have a plan in case the mandate lifts.

Athletic director Terry Friedman suggested that policies were changed based off of the county’s color on the Indiana COVID-19 metrics map. For example, if the county is red, only essential personnel, parents, and siblings would be present. If the county went to yellow, they gym would open to 25% capacity with less restrictions.

This was met with some pushback from board member Shawn Dooley, who expressed that even if the county is “in the yellow” that doesn’t mean that the district is. Dooley said he didn’t feel comfortable with that many people in the gym that could potentially spread the virus to players and other attendees.

The board eventually approved that they will not be offering concessions at all at any sporting event. They noted that they will do what they can to make these games accessible to the public virtually, like on the Northeast Dubois’s YouTube Channel.
