The Hardin County Schools Board of Education voted 4-1 tonight to stay with in-person classes to begin Aug. 24.

The vote was held at a special board meeting to discuss potential changes to the school's calendar.

On Monday, Gov. Andy Beshear recommended schools begin with in-person instruction on Sept. 28.

About six individuals attended the meeting and expressed their concerns and shared their stance on the start of a new school year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. They were joined at the meeting by teachers and other parents.

See Thursday's print edition of The News-Enterprise for more details.
