LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jefferson County Public Schools will host a virtual town hall Monday night to discuss preparations for the new school year.
The virtual town hall will be at 6 p.m. on the JCPS YouTube channel, and district officials will seek feedback from the public and answer questions.
At its July 21 meeting, the Jefferson County Board of Education will consider a proposal to delay the starting date for the upcoming year to Aug. 25 to give the district more time and flexibility to prepare.
Educators who responded to a survey from the Jefferson County Teachers Association overwhelmingly want to begin the 2020-21 school year remotely, the union's vice president said Wednesday.
Superintendent Marty Pollio has said that adhering to public health guidance for reopening schools "will be challenging."
- Majority of JCPS teachers prefer starting 2020-21 with distance learning, union survey finds
- JCPS preparing for 'enormous' and 'challenging' efforts to reopen amid COVID-19
