KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Kenosha Unified officials say that they are in constant communication with the health department over the Covid-19 situation in the schools.
Since the late start to the year in mid-September several schools have switched to all virtual classes on a temporary basis due to positive cases or lack of subs to cover teachers that need to quarantine.
School Board President Tom Duncan said that while health officials have supported the district’s policy so far, everyone needs to do better.
The Kenosha Education Association has constantly called for the end of in person classes as cases pile up in the state. Duncan says that while tWisconsin is a hot spot for the virus, Kenosha is in better shape than other areas.
It’s not clear if or when the board would reconsider the in-person class option. Half of the district’s enrollment chose to go to class in person. The Board also voted to approve the 2020-21 budget with little discussion.
