BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Kern High School District Board of Trustees met tonight to further discuss what the 2020-21 school year will look like for teachers and when school will officially start.

In their previous meeting, a resolution was adopted to implement distance learning in the fall until Oct. 9. After that, schools will move into a hybrid plan.

The KHSD Board of Trustees, after a long discussion, decided to delay the start of this school year by eight days and are now allowing teachers to decide for themselves whether or not they would like to work on campus or from home.

Students will remain off-campus.

The 2020-21 school year is now set to begin on Aug. 24.
