Gov. Andy Beshear told Kentucky schools they should delay in-person classes until Sept. 28, but the Kentucky Association of School Superintendents and the Kentucky School Board Association (KSBA) testified to a legislative committee that the decision should be made locally. Spencer County Schools Superintendent Chuck Adams said his association would prefer to have local control. Eric Kennedy, director of governmental relations for KSBA said since each district is different so should their requirements. He said, “There’s so much diversity across the communities of Kentucky, that there really should not be a one size fits all approach to this issue for providing education and reopening school… there has got to be the ability to make choices from the local level that best fits the individuals.”
