Gov. Kelly issue executive order to delay start school until Sept 9

By KNSS Radio

Kansas’ governor says she will delay the reopening of the state’s K-12 schools for nearly a month until after Labor Day because of a resurgence in reported coronavirus cases. Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly’s announcement is all but certain to generate criticism from the Republican-controlled Legislature. Kelly announced her plans only hours after the State Board of Education approved roughly 1,100 pages of reopening guidelines for local boards of education. Kelly said she will issue an executive order Monday to delay reopening of schools until Sept. 9. The state health department reported that Kansas has had 20,933 cases. That's up 865 or 4.4% in two days.
