Message from the Superintendent
As a reminder, on July 15, 2020, the School Board Approved the recommended Return to Learn plan that included both hybrid (in-person learning and distance learning) and 100% distance learning options with the following specific modification:
*All students will begin the school year on August 17, 2020, via distance learning for the first nine week grading period.
*Address connectivity challenges for students by opening up some schools as hubs for more equitable internet access.
SCPS has compiled answers to questions we received over the past weeks and compiled a running Return to Learn Q&A document. This document is fluid and will be updated as additional questions are received as well as adjusted based on up-to-date guidance from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Based on the School Board's approved modifications to the Return to Learn plan, SCPS leadership has been working throughout the week to reflect these changes in the draft plan. We will share these updates along with additional communications on Monday, July 27, 2020.
