Kentucky Senate backs bill requiring schools to reopen

Under the bill, districts would need to offer, at least, a hybrid schedule where students attend in-person classes at least two days a week.

FRANKFORT, Ky. — The Kentucky Senate has voted to require schools to reopen in-person instruction by late March. 

Senators passed the bill Wednesday and it is potentially one step from going to the governor. 

It returns to the House, which will consider Senate changes. If the House accepts the changes, it could send the legislation to Gov. Andy Beshear. 

The bill would require in-person classes resume by March 29.

Under the bill, districts would need to offer, at least, a hybrid schedule where students attend in-person classes at least two days a week and classes are held at least four days a week.
