The following statement can be attributed to Dr. Jason A. Conway, Executive Director at Westmoreland Intermediate Unit.


“The unanticipated and unprecedented closure of schools due to COVID-19 has put our most vulnerable learners in jeopardy. Without access to virtual, online learning, we anticipate significant learning losses that may never be fully recovered.  Because many of the families served by Westmoreland County schools do not have access to digital internet connectivity, we must find a way to provide for them. Congressional failure to act swiftly and deliberately will result in setbacks in child achievement and learning that will be apparent for years to come.”
