At Tuesday's coronavirus press conference Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called out several school districts including Columbus City Schools, that aren't on track to have all students back in school at least part time by March 1rst.  At Tuesday evening's school board meeting officials say there's solid and systemic reasons why that won't happen.  Alison Holm has more.   

Some schools in Ohio say they won’t reopen for in-person learning by March 1st, despite superintendents having made a commitment to do so, in exchange for priority COVID-19 vaccinations.
