DODGEVILLE, Wis. — With a growing number of positive COVID-19 cases in Iowa County, the Dodgeville School District will temporarily switch to a blended learning schedule for students in grades 7-12.

In the past two weeks, there have been 47 confirmed cases in Iowa County, according to a notice posted on the Dodgeville School District website. This jump in cases impacts the district’s instructional model and moves it into a level 3.

The instructional model for grades 7-12 will pivot to 50%, with in-person instruction taking place every other day. Wednesday will be a full virtual day.

Elementary school through sixth grade will operate as normal during this time period.
