03/03/21 Grades 9 through 12 High School Education Map

High schools will attend school in-person unless their county is red on the DHHR County Alert System Map. In-person instruction may consist of blended learning models for students in grades 9-12. Consistent with the practice that has been in place since the start of the 2020-2021 school year, high schools will move to remote learning the day after the county turns red on the DHHR County Alert System Map.

The daily map will be posted here and counties will follow guidelines below.

High Schools in Red Counties

Grades 9 through 12

  • High schools will attend school in-person unless their county is red on the DHHR County Alert System Map

  • The WVBE recommends that students in grades 9-12 in counties that are not red attend school five days per week.

  • High schools will move to remote learning the day after the county turns red on the DHHR County Alert System Map. County superintendents will determine if in-person instruction will resume the following Monday or sooner if the DHHR County Alert System Map allows. 

  • A local county board of education retains the authority to work with local health officials and to close individual classrooms or schools when a specific health need related to that classroom or school is identified irrespective of the county’s color on the DHHR County Alert System Map. Such closures shall be of limited duration and related to the specific health need of the school or classroom. Even when a county is red on the DHHR County Alert System Map, teachers and staff will continue essential student support services including meals, student engagement, all special education services and support to at-risk students. 

  • Parents will continue to have the ability to choose a virtual learning option for their children.
