More students to return to Dorchester County Public Schools


DORCHESTER COUNTY, Md. – Starting Tuesday, more students will be returning for in person learning at Dorchester County Public Schools. Those students include pre kindergarten, kindergarten, sixth, and ninth graders.

Superintendent of Dorchester County Public Schools David Bromwell says the district has been spending weeks making sure that everything was up to speed before more students returned. “The biggest kicker has been trying to figure out what are the actual rules of our game plan as we’re constantly being thrown a different rule or a different guideline from the CDC,” said Bromwell.

Bromwell tells us that one of the biggest challenges was getting hotspots and devices distributed. But he says he feels the district is ready for more students to return. “I think we’ve done a monumental task, and overall yes we’ve had some snags – they were expected. But we’re kind of up and running. I want to thank our neighboring counties who were doing one on one as well because we took a lot of their information and they were free to share where they ran into issues,” said Bromwell.

 Bromwell also tells 47ABC that teachers will be teaching both online and in person classes simultaneously. He says that students in class will still be using their devices. That way, they can interact with their classmates at home.
