LCBOE Approves Remote Learning Start for School Year


The Logan County Board of Education met in special session Wednesday to approve a fully virtual learning model heading back into the school year.


Students will be taught remotely through at least the month of September.


The move comes after Gov. Jim Justice revealed the color-coded school reopening map, which showed Logan County as the only county in the red.


Families who don’t have access to internet will be able to pick up learning packets at their schools, meals will be delivered to homes, and before the school year begins, each student will be able to receive a device to take home to help with remote learning. Each school in the county will serve as a WiFi hotspot.


The board will reevaluate whether to bring kids back to classrooms as they get closer to October.


Students may transition back to school buildings in-person once COVID-19 numbers drop.

That will entail a blended-learning model, in which students will attend in-person class twice a week and learn remotely three days a week.


Athletic and extracurricular practices remain suspended in Logan County.
