JCPS School Board Meeting Today

The new meeting will be held at 2:15 p.m. Thursday at the Vanhoose Education Center.
On the agenda is the recommendation to approve the “test-to-stay” protocol, despite this program not being recommended or endorsed by the CDC.
What they’re saying: “At this time, we do not recommend or endorse a test-to-stay program,” the CDC told the Times. “However, we are working with multiple jurisdictions who have chosen to use these approaches to gather more information.”
