CONCORD – Today, during his press conference, Governor Sununu stated that after April 19th, if a school has not fully re-opened for in-person learning the hours spent conducting remote education would not be counted towards the completion of the school year and will need to be made up if the schools hasn’t already reached the total days/hours needed for the year.
After the press conference, Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy (D-Manchester) and Deputy Senate Democratic Leader Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement:
“Schools across the state have been successfully executing plans to return to in-person learning based on the timeline that works best for their district. The Governor’s arbitrary deadline is a complete reversal of his original position on ‘local control’ flexibility and disregards the hard work of our schools to develop and execute their reopening plans. We would ask that he remember his own words, that every district is different, and stop pushing schools to change their plans based on an unnecessary one-size-fits-all deadline.”
