GOWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Gowanda Central School District is temporarily switching to remote learning due to "short-term critical staff shortages."

The district will be fully remote Wednesday, November 17 through Tuesday, November 23, for Kindergarten to 12th grade. Full time in-person instruction is expected to resume on Monday, November 29, according to the district.

The district superintendent tells us the widespread bus driver shortage is a contributing factor, as drivers and other bus staff are off for various reasons.

The district says out-of-district programs, conferences and athletics will continue as scheduled.
