DARLINGTON, S.C. (WMBF) - Another Pee Dee school district is extending its all-virtual learning schedule.

The Darlington County School District announced Thursday that its remote method will continue next week and is expected to end on Jan. 22.

In a statement, the district cited input from “administrators, teachers, parents, and community members regarding the COVID-19 situation in Darlington County.” It also said that athletic and extracurricular activities will also be put on hold for that week.

For high school students, end-of-course testing for English 2, Biology, Algebra 1 and U.S. History will take place next week. The district says teachers will contact students with more information.

The district also said it plans to resume face-to-face classes on Jan. 25.

The announcement comes the same day as Florence County School District 3 announced it will remain virtual through the end of the month.
