School Board approved the potential use of $312,000 in state grant funds last week to hire about 32 certified teachers to help with “distance learning” during the coronavirus pandemic.

The district’s first attempt at an at-home school day on August 28 was stymied by a server crash, but a second is planned for Monday, September 21. Director of Schools Dr. Shane Johnston also told Board Members that an additional nine to 12 distance learning days are being considered for the high school due to the rising number of quarantined students, as well as teacher needs.
