DCPS sets record straight on reopening plans

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – Dorchester County Public Schools are firing back at Governor Larry Hogan following his claims that the school board did not submit their reopening plans. Friday afternoon, Superintendent Dave Bromwell, argued that the school board did in fact submit their plans on time. He said they actually submitted them on August 12th. In their current phase one reopening plan, Dorchester County students will be learning online only for the time being.
School officials add that they will, “Continue to work with the state’s phases of reopening, recommendations by our local health department, and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our employees and students.”

“The Dorchester County Public School reopening plan is what we worked hard on to prepare. As these experts confirm our transitions are safe and meet health and safety standards. We will notify our community and bring in small groups of students in phases as we have stated all along,” said Bromwell.

The first day for virtual learning for students will take place on Thursday, September 8th.
