LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Governor Andy Beshear plans to discuss plans for the rest of the school year with superintendents Monday.

Over the past month, schools in Kentucky have transitioned to online learning in hopes of limiting the spread of COVID-19.

Based on the Governor's benchmarks to reopen Kentucky's economy, schools may not have in-class learning for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.

According to WDRB, Governor Beshear and others have hinted at the possibility of suspending in-class learning for the remainder of the school year.

It's reported that Toni Konz Tatman, the interim Communications Director for the Kentucky Department of Education, says that the state has scheduled another conference call Monday afternoon with Governor Beshear, Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman and school superintendents.

This is a developing story. LEX 18 will provide updates as they become available. Governor Andy Beshear is scheduled to give another COVID-19 update Monday at 5:00 p.m.
