Statement from Education Commissioner Jason E. Glass

“This law does not go far enough in providing the flexibility in different school models that our schools need. Further, the politically-motivated effort to remove masking requirements in public schools weakens our virus mitigation efforts as a state at the very time they are needed most.

“We will be working with Kentucky’s school districts as they continue to try to keep students in school safely and do our best to manage the consequences of the decisions made by our legislature in this special session.”
