West Baton Rouge Parish is already focusing on the next school year.

Superintendent Wesley Watts announced yesterday that the district will introduce some sort of virtual school as an option even if students are allowed to return to class in August.

In a statement, Watts said that some parents still may be uncomfortable sending their kids back to school in the fall and says that going virtual, even if its not fully needed, will be much safer.

He added that they are already working on building a video library and a true distance learning model to incorporate live instruction.

No final decision on what school will look like yet, but Watts ensures the decision will have the students' best interest in mind.

Starting next week, the school board is going to send out a survey to parents asking them what would be the best option for them if social distancing is still encouraged.
