SCHOOL BOARD MAY DELAY FIRST DAY OF CLASSES, SPECIAL CALLED MEETING TODAY AT 5

SHARE:

 

Cumberland County Board of Education is meeting today to discuss modifying the school calendar in order to give teachers a few more days for orientation on virtual online teaching.   Several parents have opted for online virtual homeschooling opposed to sending their kids to school.  The modification for the school calendar would be only a few days delay for kids to start first full-day of school.  The registration day of August 5th would not change.  But instead of the first day of classes being August 7th, it would be August 12th if the board passes. The Board will meet at 5pm and that meeting will be streamed live.
