“Our Students First” has released its recommendations for what they consider “a safe return to school” this fall. The group is a coalition of teachers, school personnel, parents and community partners that first formed in early 2019 to oppose the education omnibus bill before the West Virginia Legislature.

At the top of their list is a call for school districts to start schools remotely this year, with each individual county making the decision to resume in-person instruction only after a county experiences 14 consecutive days of no new cases of COVID-19.
