Jennings school board to consider later start date

NORTH VERNON β€” The Jennings County School Corp. board is planning a special meeting Thursday to discuss potentially moving back the start date for the school year.

JCSC Superintendent Teresa Brown said the schools are ready to reopen as scheduled, but the start date could be pushed back depending on information presented to the board.

β€œAt this time, the date Aug. 6 is kind of a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ thing,” Brown said Tuesday. “We are ready to open but, depending on information from the health department, the date could be pushed back a week.”
