Beshear Issues New Executive Order for All Schools Trojan

On November 18, the governor announced a new executive order for all schools in the state. As a result, BC students in grades 6-12 will continue distance learning until January 4. According to the order, 6th grade should be included with upper grades even if they attend classes on an elementary campus.  Pre-K through 5th grade students will continue until December 7. If our county is not in the Red Zone, in-person instruction for pre-k through 5th grade can resume on December 7. We must stay out of the Red Zone to conduct in-person instruction. We will continue with our current distance learning plan until further notice. Stay safe!
