- Monroe Advanced Technical Academy students.
- Academy of Engineering and Technology seniors and Academy of Science seniors who chose hybrid learning.
- Grades K-12 English learners, proficiency levels 1.0 - 1.9
- Students with disabilities who receive instruction through the Aligned Standards of Learning (ASOL) and those receiving instruction through specialized self-contained programs. Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) through returning graduates, are eligible to receive up to four days of in-person instruction as determined by their IEP team.
According to school officials, the school board also voted to initiate Stage 4 of the in-person learning model for all students who chose hybrid learning for the second semester no later than Wednesday, March 3.
