LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jefferson County Public Schools have launched a new section of their website to help parents prepare for the upcoming school year.

The new section of the website, called "Preparing for the start of the 2020-2021 school year," indicates that the district is exploring options to potentially hold in-person classes in the fall.

However, JCPS also is planning for alternative scenarios for instruction, including more remote learning.

The district said that the variables that are affecting its decision-making process include that children learn better in a traditional classroom environment with in-person instruction — but that neither a COVID-19 vaccine nor a 100 % effective treatment is available.

The site also provides public health guidelines related to COVID-19.
