Proposed Plan for Reopening Models
Proposed Plan for Reopening Models: September 23, 2020
Please see below for the district’s proposed plan presented at the September 23, 2020, Special Called Board Meeting for how APS will provide choice for students in a phased-in approach for in-person learning given the current health data. This presentation serves as a proposal based on data secured to date. It is important to note that the hybrid model can change pending additional data from APS stakeholders (employees and families).
September 2020 Atlanta Board of Education Meeting Presentation: COVID-19 Public Health Update
The previously stated plan for virtual instruction through the first nine weeks of school (Friday, October 23rd) remains in place. While we are continuously monitoring the health status of Atlanta, Fulton and DeKalb (and are encouraged by the positive trends we are seeing in some of the health metrics), we do not plan to bring any students back for face-to-face instruction before Monday, October 26th at the earliest. We are, however, working at this time to identify the groups of students who would be our priority for in-person instruction once we have emerged from substantial spread. Given the challenges faced by our early learners and special needs students in the virtual environment, it is likely that these populations would be our Tier I focus for coming back into our schools.
