Desert Sands Unified School District is considering doubling the days students attend in-person class starting on May 3.

The school board will consider an item during its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday that would increase the number of in-person class days from two to four days a week.

Currently, DSUSD students attending in-person classes are on campus either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday.

If the new plan is approved, all Desert Sands students would be allowed to attend in-person classes four days a week beginning on May 3 through the remainder of the school year, which ends on June 4. On Wednesdays, all students would continue to have classes virtually.

“All plans are subject to change as state and county public health guidelines and orders are modified,” the agenda item states.

DSUSD primarily serves Bermuda Dunes, Indian Wells, Indio, La Quinta and Palm Desert.
