RICHMOND, Va. (WDBJ) - Governor Ralph Northam told the Washington Post Thursday that summer school may be in the cards for at least some Virginia students this year, in an effort to help them catch up after months of often-virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said he would announce plans Friday that might involve extending classroom studies into the summer. No specifics have been announced.
