Schools still to open Monday



In-person classes are still scheduled to start Monday in the Wayne County school system.
The Wayne County Board of Education voted 4-1 Tuesday night to continue with the previously approved plan.
Sheron Daniel, who had suggested delaying classes until September, cast the dissenting vote.
The Board had agreed a week earlier to meet Tuesday so that Board members could make a final decision, based on the most recent trends, on whether to retain plans for starting in-person classes (with a virtual option) Monday.
Other possibilities that had been discussed were delaying the start of school again and having only virtual classes.
