W.Va. BOE Votes To Send Students Back Full Time

The state Board of Education voted Tuesday to mandate all elementary and middle schools in West Virginia return to a five day a week in-person instruction schedule beginning March 3.

The board took its vote after hearing from state Coronavirus Czar Dr. Clay Marsh who told board members such a return would be safe.

The board’s motion requires all county school systems to return to the full-time schedule.

Counties will be allowed to request a waiver to use one day a week to catch-up if a local virtual program is being used. Some teachers are doing both in-person and virtual instruction.

The motion also requires mitigation efforts, including mask wearing and social distancing to continue.
