ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Roanoke County Public Schools announced Tuesday morning the choice to delay a vote on the post-pandemic plan for the upcoming school year.
According to Chuck Lionberger with Roanoke County Public Schools, the Roanoke County School Board is delaying the vote on the start of the 2020-2021 academic year in order to allow for more time for school officials to discuss their options, as well as more time for members of the community to provide their input.
In addition, Lionberger says the school board moved the meeting for Thursday, July 2 to the Northside High School auditorium to allow for more people to attend the 6 p.m. meeting. Even though school board meetings are open to the public, attendees are asked to abide by social distancing guidelines.
