DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. -- Special education students returned to the classroom in Dinwiddie County Monday morning.

Last week, the School Board voted unanimously to transition students back to the classroom in the upcoming weeks.

As apart of Dinwiddie County’s Reopening plan, smaller classroom sizes were created. School officials said no more than 10-15 students were in each school, with some having less than five students.

Students who returned back to the classrooms on Monday are level two I-E-P learners. Each student will spend at least 50 percent of the school day learning in a self contained setting.

School officials say some students did not return due to health concerns and others remained virtual, by parent choice.

Students pre-k through 5th grade will go back to class on September 28.

School Board members will meet Tuesday at 4 p.m. to discuss when students in grades 6th - 12th, will be able to return to the classroom.
