OLDHAM COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) - Oldham County Schools middle and high school students will start the year off on an A/B schedule, meaning students will transition going to class in-person on certain days while working at home on others. The schedule was created as the county still battles the coronavirus and its spread.

The school board approved the measure during Monday night’s meeting.

Half the students will go to school Mondays and Wednesdays, and the other half will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays will be alternated between the two groups for in-person instruction.

On days students are not scheduled for in-person classes, they will take part in online instruction.

Initially groups would be split up by last name, but in Monday’s meeting it was decided to split up students by household, which will be configured using the Infinite Campus system.

Lori McDowell, the director of communications for Oldham County Schools, said more information will be released about the schedule in the next few days.
