Ohio County Schools shift to 4 days a week in school education

Ohio County

Wheeling, W.Va. (WTRF)- Ohio County Schools is shifting to a level one and students will begin attending school four days a week.

K through 12 students will have in-person instruction Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Wednesday will remain reserved for remote learning.

A school that’s built for 2,500 kids; when there’s 400 in there, it feels like a ghost town. So today we have over 800 kids there, and we saw classrooms that were alive and we had 16, 17 people in them. It was pretty exciting at Park today to see more people and see it feel like a real school again.

Rick Jones, Assistant Superintendent for Ohio County Schools

Full time remote learners will remain the same.

On the school alert system map, Ohio County is placed in the “gold” advisory.

The assistant superintendent says the “gold” level doesn’t have class restrictions, but there are athletic repercussions — This week OCS sports teams can only verse other gold counties.

So now for the first time ever, Park will go up against Linsly in football this Friday instead of the slated Steubenville Big Red matchup… because it’s impossible for OCS to verse any team in Ohio when in “gold” … since the Buckeye State has no gold level.
