CIS to begin school year with virtual learning

Campbellsville Independent Schools’ students will head back to school on Wednesday, Aug. 26, but their studies will now be online through September.

 

Gov. Andy Beshear recently strongly recommended that Kentucky public schools delay in-person classes until Monday, Sept. 28.

 

CIS Superintendent Kirby Smith discussed the recommendation with Board of Education members during their regular meeting on Monday, Aug. 10.

 

Ultimately, he recommended that all CIS students begin the year virtually. Board members unanimously agreed.

 

As a result, some changes have been made to upcoming open house and registration events.

 

All CIS students will use the Google Classroom platform for their studies.

 

Smith said the decision to begin the year virtually was a tough one, because he and other administrators have spent lots of time preparing to begin the year with in-person classes.

 

“As always, safety has to be our No. 1 priority.”

 

And, he said, he knows many students were looking forward to going back to school.

 

Teachers recently conducted a survey about returning to school, with 60 percent of students saying they want to attend in-person classes.

 

Smith said he realizes the change will place some hardships on families, and the District will do everything it can to help.

 

To that end, he said, laptops will be available for student use and students can receive free breakfast and lunch.

 

Smith said it’s imperative that students and parents attend upcoming open house events to receive their laptops, a school schedule and other information and to learn about the programs they will use to complete their work.

 

Updated information about open house and registration events follows.
