Guidance for in-person learning released
Officials from the Kentucky Department of Public Health and the Kentucky Department of Education have released new guidance to districts around the Commonwealth about returning to in-person learning. The guidance includes a color coded chart (shown above) that gives districts directions about when it is safe to return to school buildings. The Jefferson County Board of Education (JCBE) has not made a decision yet about the next phase of learning, but we anticipate a decision before the end of September. According to this chart, Jefferson County Public Schools would fall under the orange category and the guidance calls for a consideration of remote learning only. For a more in-depth look at what each color on the chart means, click here for a summary from state health officials. Our Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) continues for more than 90,000 students in JCPS. Once the JCBE makes a final decision about instruction for students moving forward, we will share the details with you.
