WayneCounty Public Schools (CPS) is operating under a mix of in-person instruction and remote learning. “When staff and students return, it will have been more than two weeks since the last reported case of a positive individual being on campus,” Merrill said in a statement.
The district’s superintendent and finance director resigned amid questions about a $5 million budget shortfall and a critical financial audit. A former teacher and local businesses launched a Chromebook drive to raise money to purchase devices for students.
WayneCounty Public Schools spokesman Ken Darken said the district has issued 6,501 Chromebooks and 479 Wi-Fi hot spots for student use during the pandemic. Teachers told an officer in the local branch of the NAACP that the district didn’t give them the resources needed to keep students safe.
CPS continues using special state and federal funding to purchase cleaning equipment and supplies to support sanitization and disinfectant efforts at schools. Classroom supplies continue being purchased to support teacher and staff efforts to sanitize desks and other contact surfaces in between students.

On Thursday night at the cafeteria of Dun low Elementary School, the WayneCounty Board of Education was set to vote on a cost-savings move to address the issue of decreasing enrollment. Alexander’s recommendation to the board at the meeting was to consolidate Genoa and Dun low Elementary into a single school.
Alexander said his preferred site for consolidation is Dun low Elementary because it is “centralized” and is bigger with three additional rooms. At the meeting on Thursday, some people were totally against the superintendent’s recommendation to relocate Genoa students to Dun low.
Both schools, for the time being, will stay open to the delight of many families and employees at Genoa Elementary. Tammy Williamson, who works at Genoa Elementary, was in tears when she heard the announcement that the school board will not be moving forward on consolidation.
“Bring kids that are closer to us three or four miles down the road to come to us instead of going twice the distance to another school,” said Williamson. Alexander said consolidation is now out of the picture, and they will start looking at other alternatives to address the issues in the district, and he said one of the things at the top of the list renovating the roof at Dun low Elementary.
