Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly has responded to the State Board of Education’s vote to reject her executive order delaying the start of school with the following statement:
“The cases of COVID-19 in Kansas are at an all-time high and continue to rise. Our decisions must be informed by public health experts not politics. This vote puts our students, faculty, their families and our economy at risk.
“I will continue to work with our school districts to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children and ask every school district to delay the start of school.”
