More details have been released by the Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia about plans for reopening this fall. The school district’s draft plan was presented on Monday during a school board work session. It includes three scenarios based on different levels of coronavirus-related restrictions.
According to wtop.com, “In the first, all learning would happen virtually with four days of live, teacher-led classes and one day of students working alone or with other students. The second scenario imagines students returning to reduced-capacity classrooms. The plan imagined students returning to classrooms at 50% capacity and 25% capacity. Scenario 3 is a plan to offer all-online learning to students who are at higher medical risk, even if some or all students are able to return to classrooms.”
As per wtop.com, “Another school board work session is scheduled next week to discuss the plans in more detail. The school board plans to decide by June 26 in what format classes will resume when the new school year starts Aug. 25. If the school system chooses a Scenario 2 reopening, elementary and middle school students will be notified by Aug. 10 which days students will attend in-person classes, so that parents can make child-care plans. Under that same scenario, high school students and students attending all-online classes would be notified of their schedules by the week of Aug. 17-21.”
