3 large Kansas school districts to open after Labor Day

July 23, 2020 - 7:00 pm

Three of the largest school districts in the state will not resume classes until after Labor Day in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Leaders of the Wichita School district voted Thursday to delay the return to school. That came after the Blue Valley and Shawnee Mission districts in Johnson County announced their delayed openings Wednesday, hours after the Kansas State Board of Education rejected Gov. Laura Kelly’s order to delay school.

School officials cited concerns over providing for the safety of students and staff if schools opened as scheduled in August. Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas, districts voted earlier to postpone their return to in-in person education.
