FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky House has weighed in on the issue of getting children back in classrooms amid the coronavirus pandemic. The House passed a bill Wednesday requiring schools to reopen in-person instruction by late March. The requirement that in-person classes resume by March 29 was added to a larger education bill that cleared the House on an 87-8 vote. The measure now goes to the Senate. Under the bill, school districts would need to offer, at least, a hybrid schedule where students attend in-person classes at least two days a week and classes are held at least four days a week.
