Colfax to start school online
August 13, 2020
The Colfax School board voted unanimously Monday night to start school on time in full distance-learning mode Aug. 31, following the recommendation of the Whitman County Health Department.
With the board’s approval, a 25-page plan was posted on the district website.
The district will begin where it left off in the spring, though with a slate of changes and revisions to the system worked out on short notice in March.
“My recommendation to the board is to follow the guidance of the health department,” Superintendent Jerry Pugh said before the vote Monday. “In my professional opinion, I am not qualified to second guess that, and I won’t second guess that.”
