Immediately after a year off due to uncertainty about the coronavirus, Bartlesville Large Faculty will start out accepting international exchange pupils yet again in the 2021-22 university yr.

“The decision was manufactured last summertime not to host foreign exchange college students this yr because of a lot of unknowns with setting up a university year during a pandemic,” mentioned Principal LaDonna Chancellor. “We failed to know if we would have in-particular person lessons or digital lessons, or if pupils would have opportunities to show up at school activities.”


It turns out the Bartlesville school district’s strategy for slowing the distribute of the coronavirus has been remarkably effective, she reported.

The significant university has held in-individual classes for all but 1 7 days of the initially semester, and school situations have continued in a restricted capability.

“Hunting ahead to future 12 months we feel self-assured we can assistance foreign trade college students and provide an in-particular person studying experience with opportunities to show up at faculty functions — even if they are not in the common formats we savored prior to the pandemic,” Chancellor explained. “With that in brain, we are happy to host foreign trade college students again beginning this drop.”
