WASHINGTON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
RETURN TO LEARN PLAN
At the Board of Education meeting earlier this week, the Board approved an expanded plan to reopen schools to students in five stages. Based on the plan, the first students would return to classrooms on Wednesday, September 16, 2020.
The motion approved by the Board includes the following:
I move to approve the Superintendent’s overall plan for returning students, teachers, and staff to school buildings for in-person instruction, beginning with moving into Stage 2 on Wednesday, September 16. Moving forward, the Superintendent shall determine when it is appropriate to move from each stage as determined by the Governor’s metrics. As we move through stages, students’ families will have a choice whether to return to school buildings until said time as distance learning ends.
As with all aspects of school operations through this pandemic, we anticipate there will be adjustments made to the plan as WCPS reviews details, collaborates with partners and stakeholders, and responds to COVID-19 in our community.
WCPS will be providing further details and directions to our learning community in the days ahead. You can view the process for following the governor’s health metrics and for returning students to classrooms in the Board presentation materials below.
