TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) — The Kansas State School Board of Education has suspended rules for districts if closed due to the coronavirus.
The Board voted and approved that schools will not be penalized if they shorten their school days, suspend or cancel classes, how they deliver educational courses to students and the graduation requirements.
The move is to allow flexibility for district to address COVID-19 without penalty to students or districts.
According to Dr. Steve Noble with the Seaman School District, “it allows the Education Commissioner to waive the required hours of school attendance (1116 hrs) but only if schools are closed by local or state public health officials, the Governor, or President of the United States.”
