Dorchester Co. Schools provide update on possible fall reopenings

CAMBRIDGE, Md. — Dorchester County Public Schools Superintendent Dave Bromwell gave an update on schools reopening in the fall.

On a live virtual meeting, Bromwell expressed that he was previously in favor of having students return for in-person learning in the fall, but now he says its up in the air when students and faculty will be able to safely return.

When asked about students returning to schools, the superintendent did confirm that by August 31st, students will be back to school, whether that be through online learning or in person learning.

Bromwell says, “I think it’s a wait and see. I think if you ask mean …  the community, Dorchester county schools — we’re going back to school in some kind of fashion. Our teachers are contracted for 37 and half hours, they’re gonna teach for 37 and a half hours.”

There were talks of students following an  A or B day schedule if they’re able to return to school.

For now, Bromwell says parents will have a definite answer on what the county will do by at least the end of the month.
