Fairfax County School Board Votes For Virtual Classes

The Fairfax County School Board in Virginia voted Tuesday night to approve the recommendation of Superintendent Scott Brabrand that the school year begins virtually. The school district serves 189,000 students and is the largest in Virginia. It had given parents a choice of either all-virtual or a hybrid approach that would mean some in-person instruction.

As per wtop.com, “And although the goal remains in-person instruction, Brabrand cited the recent surge of coronavirus cases around the region and nationwide for the new recommendation. “We are pleased FCPS is putting students and staff safety first and listening to the science, educational experts and our community by opting for a 100 percent virtual start,” Tina Williams, president of the Fairfax County Federation of Teachers, said in a statement.”

According to wtop.com, “In-school testing of students and staff for coronavirus isn’t possible either, because of “limited testing capacity and high costs.” The virtual-learning arrangement would be reviewed later after the academic year’s first quarter ends. Students would be brought back on a limited basis as conditions improve.”
