The West Virginia State Board of Education Wednesday unanimously decided to end any countywide option for remote learning after next week.
Parents will still have the option of virtual learning for their children.
Governor Jim Justice previously set a date of January 19 for elementary and middle schools to return to classroom instruction five days a week no matter a county’s color.
High schools will still operate depending on the county’s color on the alert map released daily by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. County officials can close individual schools or classrooms for health concerns.
The state BOE decision does not prevent county school boards from utilizing blended models for classroom instruction.
The Logan County Board of Education on Tuesday pushed back a decision on classroom return to Thursday.
The Logan BOE will meet in special session this evening at 5 o’clock in the administration office building on Holly Avenue in Logan.
