Return to Learn: Resuming Instruction Safely
On June 9, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam announced a phased reopening of K-12 schools in the Commonwealth, which gradually permits in-person instruction to resume while prioritizing the health and safety of students and staff. To minimize the disparate impacts closures have had on students, this approach prioritizes the needs of students who have been most impacted by school building closures.
It simultaneously recognizes the disruption closures have had on all students and seeks to bring them back to the classroom as soon as it is safe and practicable.
With this guidance, Prince George County Public Schools has begun work to welcome our students back to class in a manner that reflects the guidelines set forth by state health officials to protect our children, their families, and our faculty and staff.
On June 1, the superintendent presented possible scenarios for PGCPS’ ‘Return to Learn’ for Fall 2020. The details of that presentation can be viewed in the ‘RESOURCES’ Panel of our ‘Return to Learn’ page or by clicking HERE.
Before PGCPS can resume in-classroom instruction as part of Phase II or Phase III of Virginia's Return to School Plan, the school district was required to submit a plan to the Virginia Department of Education that outlines our strategies for mitigating public health risk of COVID-19 and complying with CDC and VDH recommendations. That plan was submitted to VDOE on June 17. PGCPS' Health Mitigation Plan can be viewed in the 'RESOURCES' panel of our 'Return to Learn' page or by clicking HERE.
Additionally, as the 2020-2021 School Year approaches, PGCPS will also submit a plan to the VDOE for providing new instruction to our students in the 2020-2021 academic year, including in-classroom, blended education (comprised of in-classroom and virtual/remote instruction), and virtual/remote instruction.
On July 13, the superintendent presented an update on planning efforts related to 'Return to Learn' for Fall 2020. The details of that presentation can be viewed in the ‘RESOURCES’ Panel of our ‘Return to Learn’ page or by clicking HERE.
On July 16, the school district shared a 'Return to Learn' Frequently Asked Questions page that will be regularly updated with answers to questions from our community. That document can be viewed in the 'RESOURCES' panel of our 'Return to Learn' page or by clicking HERE.
On August 6, the school district presented an update that detailed how PGCPS will resume instruction safely for our students through offerings of both in-person and virtual/remote instruction. That document can be viewed in the 'RESOURCES' panel of our 'Return to Learn' page or by clicking HERE.
On August 12, Prince George County Public Schools submitted its instructional plan to the Virginia Department of Education. This plan details how PGCPS will provide new instruction to all students in the 2020-2021 academic year, regardless of phase or the operational status of the school division at the time. This plan also include strategies to address learning lost due to spring 2020 school closures. It also includes a plan for fully remote instruction should public health conditions require it. That document can be viewed in the 'RESOURCES' panel of our 'Return to Learn' page or by clicking HERE.
A well-developed plan is only possible with the valuable feedback of our parents and community whose input will help shape how PGCPS resumes instruction in a manner that continues to provide quality education to all of our students in-person or remotely while protecting the health and safety of our children, their families, and the community.
