The West Virginia Board of Education held an emergency meeting Wednesday afternoon to follow up on its decision of the previous week that all schools should offer some form of in-person learning for students.

As of Wednesday, 52 of the state’s 55 counties have voted to provide an in-person learning option. Boards of education in Gilmer, Marion and Taylor counties have voted to remain remote, based on local COVID rates.

Superintendents in Gilmer, Marion and Taylor counties all support some level of in-person learning, but their local boards of education have voted against it, State Superintendent Clayton Burch said.

Burch told the board that he “cannot support depriving families of that option.”
