Two Public Hearings This Week to Discuss ACPS Reopening

Alexandria City Public Schools wants feedback from the community on reopening the school system this fall and will hold two public hearings this week.

The School Board is currently awaiting a reopening report from staff to evaluate whether or not to open this fall, and if so, how to keep kids socially distant while minimizing the risk of spreading the virus.

The hearings this week will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 9, and Friday, July 10. There will be two more hearings on August 6 and 7. Anyone interested in speaking at the virtual meetings is required to sign up beforehand.

ACPS is also asking parents to fill out a fall reopening survey.

“We are aware that the situation we are facing is unprecedented, constantly changing, and requires a degree of flexibility from all of us,” notes ACPS in the survey. “You will be asked to make a decision about your commitment to return to school in late July. By that time you will have a clear idea of our anticipated reopening plans for the fall to assist you in your decision.”
