York County considers virtual learning for schools in the fall

The school board said it will hold two public comment sessions for parents, teachers, and students to weigh in.

YORKTOWN, Va. — The superintendent of York County School Division is echoing many others in Hampton Roads and recommending students start the new school year with virtual learning.

School officials sent out a letter after the school board meeting on Thursday. Like other school divisions, York leaders are looking at different options that could include in-person classes, if it's safe.

But the recommendation is to start the new school year at home.

Parents, teachers, and students can weigh-in on this. Public comment sessions are planned on Monday and Tuesday. More information is available on the school district's website.

The school board will then hold a special meeting to take action regarding the 2020-21 school year on Thursday, July 30 at 5 p.m.
