WCPS Board approves Aug. 24 start date

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Thursday evening, the Warren County Board of Education voted to amend the upcoming school calendar with a new start date of Aug. 24.

The news comes after Gov. Andy Beshear announced earlier this week that he is recommending in-person classes do not begin until at least the third week of August.

Warren County, along with the Bowling Green Independent School District, made a joint statement on Wednesday, saying they would comply with the governor’s recommendations, but that a final decision was in the hands of each respective board.

No word yet on a decision from Bowling Green’s school board.
