Board of Education Non-Traditional Intruction Days

The Pike County Board of Education held a special meeting on Thursday evening to discuss the progress of the non-traditional instruction days.


Mary Beth Stiltner, a Board of Education member, says there has been positive as well as negative feedback. She says the non-traditional instruction days are being monitored closely and the feedback has been very helpful.

Other members of the board are concerned that Pike County won't receive the proper funding because students won't be in school as much as they're normally required to do so. The board is also worried that it may cost them more money in the long run.


The board will be evaluating and reviewing the take home packets that were sent home with students and vote on whether or not to keep utilizing the non-traditional instruction days.
