Dorchester Co. schools to remain in virtual learning next week

DORCHESTER CO, Md. – Dorchester County Public School officials have announced that schools will remain at their present status next week, December 14th through 18th.

We’re told the small groups now in school buildings will continue attending in-person, but the district will not be moving to Phase 1.5 at this time.

Over the past week, the county’s testing positivity rate has hovered around 5%, with some days under that benchmark and some days over.

Superintendent W. David Bromwell says that if numbers were to drastically change in a positive or negative direction, he will act in the best interest of the community, students, and staff to keep everyone safe.

Bromwell plans to make an additional announcement next Wednesday, December 16th, to review the district’s review plans for the new year.
