Agenda Item Summary: COVID-19 continues to present ongoing challenges to ACPS and schools nationwide. As always, our goal is to ensure the effective delivery of in-person learning to meet the needs of our students while also maintaining their safety, health, and well-being. This presentation provides an update on COVID-19 health and safety measures including, but not limited to, current community transmission rates and recent CDC guidance updates. When in-person learning is not possible, due to factors outlined within the attached Protocol for Transitioning to Virtual Instruction, we may need to temporarily transition to virtual (synchronous and asynchronous) learning while keeping families fully engaged and informed.
Background: ACPS is committed to ensuring that students have access to instruction. When a specific grade, class, department, or school does not have enough staff or additional resources, ACPS will utilize a feasibility decision-making protocol to determine the next steps. Any changes will be communicated to families and staff in a timely manner. Regardless of the instructional plan, all students will bring home their devices at the end of every school day.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information in this memo.
