Superintendent Adkins announces there will be a special called meeting for the Floyd County Board of Education Tuesday, September 22, 2020. One reason for the meeting is to discuss the recent framework for modes of instruction from the KY Department of Health and the Kentucky Department of Education.
Under this framework, Kentucky counties, depending on COVID-19 activity will fall into one of four categories that are distinguished by color.
Definition of Colors
- Green: Counties in this status may have in person or remote learning.
- Yellow: Counties in this status may have in person learning with heightened mitigation factors or remote learning.
- Orange: Counties in this status must take additional mitigation steps and prepare for possible remote learning only as determined by school administrators in consultation with local public health officials.
- Red: No in-person learning can occur. In the event a district reaches red status, they should immediately suspend in-person learning for the following week.
Adkins comments, “We want to have a public discussion and time for questions about coming back to in-person classes and how we plan to make future determinations about having virtual or in-person classes.”
Adkins concludes saying, “Our board of education members and I want to thank our staff, students and our families for a great start to this school year and we are beyond excited to see many of our students back in person on the 28th! We have heard from a few parents who want to change their choices for in-person classes or virtual classes and we ask that you call the school your child attends as soon as possible to let them know so they can plan for additional students in the buildings.”
