RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – The Raleigh County BOE approved a new calendar for the 2020-21 school year.
Students will spend three days per week learning from home and only two days in classrooms.
Some now wonder what to do if students don’t have WiFi access and how to handle remote learning if parents need to work. Some parents worry about their family’s safety. All parents want answers.
“Be more informative,” said mom of two students Lauren Gifford. “Even if there’s a big posting they have to send out or an email, anything, mass call, just something. If we need to know something’s going on, make sure we’re able to find out. We’re trying to go along with this the best we can, trying to prepare our kids so they can be prepared.”
Back to school plans have yet to be finalized. The next board meeting is July 28.
