MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The West Virginia Education Association is offering to take legal action against the state if Monongalia County Schools are not allowed to maintain a class format for an extended period.
WVEA President Dale Lee and Heather Deluca-Nestor, president of the Monongalia County Education Association, met with school system Superintendent Ed Campbell on Thursday to discuss the first day of classes, as well as when to have face-to-face lessons.
The discussion came ahead of the Sept. 8 start to the school year.
Campbell said in the meeting that state officials want school districts to flip between virtual and in-person lessons depending on changes with the color-coded county alert system map. Campbell previously told the Monongalia County Board of Education if a grading period begins online, it will conclude with virtual lessons.
