COVID-19 impacting decisions as school board prepares to reopen in August
With August just two months away, the Springfield Board of Education is preparing for the return of students to the classroom.
At the June 10 study session, the school board discussed Ohio Governor’s Mike DeWine’s announcement to allow students back to school in the fall and how COVID-19 related issues will impact learning.
Among items reviewed was a change in the school calendar, which moves teacher professional development days to the beginning of the school year.
