Gloucester to begin school year virtually

The Gloucester County School Board voted 5-2 Tuesday night to conduct the first nine weeks of the 2020-2021 school year virtually. Board vice chairman Elisa Nelson and member Darren Post both objected.

The school division will begin offering online instruction for all students beginning Sept. 8. The board said it may start to phase in school openings for some students when there is a decrease in the COVID-19 transmission rate.

In other business, the board voted 4-3 to hold its meetings electronically through August.

This would include its Aug. 6 retreat from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and its regular monthly meeting on Aug. 18 at 5:30 p.m. Board chairman Robin Rice and members Troy Andersen and Post objected.
