CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia Superintendent of Schools Clayton Burch is expected to update the state Board of Education about the state’s re-entry plan at Wednesday’s board meeting.

The update will come nearly four months after classes were moved online because of the coronavirus pandemic. Students and educators completed the spring semester virtually, and spring sports were canceled because of concerns about the virus’ spread.

The state Department of Education has been accepting public comment on reopening schools through an online survey accessible at its website.

Clayton’s update will also come after President Donald Trump said he will pressure state governors to reopen schools in the fall even though coronavirus cases continue to increase nationwide.
