Kentucky’s first school district to do in-person classes switches to virtual
GREEN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - The first Kentucky school district to begin in-person classes this year is switching to virtual learning.
Green County Schools returned to in-person classes on Aug. 17, despite Gov. Andy Beshear’s recommendation to wait until September 28.
In a Facebook post on Friday, Superintendent William Hodges said the district’s Active Case Index has reached the “red light” phase and they would be moving to virtual learning for the next two weeks, starting on Monday.
Another post explains that the Active Case Index looks at active cases in the community and does not solely reflect active cases within the schools itself. The post says there are currently no positive student or employee cases that are included within the index.
The post says families should plan for in-person classes to start again after Labor Day on Tuesday, September 8 if the Active Case Index permits.
