Shelby County Schools Will Keep 175 Day Year

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Shelby County Schools says parents will have to decide next week to send their children back to school in-person or take classes online.

During Superintendent Dr. Joris Ray’s presentation to the school board Tuesday night, results of a survey were revealed about how parents prefer their children to learn during the pandemic.

About 69% of parents support online learning and 27% favor in-person classes, according to SCS.

Ray also presented the Florida Virtual Schools Curriculum for K-through-12 learning as the lessons that are ready-made for both in-class and online classes.

Earlier Tuesday, education officials confirmed the county is keeping a 175-day calendar year for the upcoming school year.
