Atlanta area school district delays start date out of
coronavirus concerns 1

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Another metro Atlanta school district is pushing back the start of the school year because of the coronavirus.

The Cobb County School District Board of Education voted to delay classes by two weeks to Aug. 17. The district said in a news release that the new start date will give students, parents, teachers, and principals time to prepare for the school year as district staff review updated guidance from public health officials.

The board’s vote on Thursday followed a recommendation by Superintendent Chris Ragsdale. The district has also postponed the time period in which parents have to decide whether to allow their children to return to school or continue learning remotely. Parents initially had to make a choice between July 2 and 10. The district has not yet come up with new dates for that decision.

Fulton County school board members previously agreed to move their start date from Aug. 10 to Aug. 17.
