Superintendent Proposing Phased Reopening of Alexandria City Public Schools Starting in November

Desks with sneeze guards, social distancing and face masks — those are a few of the recommendations that the Alexandria School Board will receive at its meeting on Thursday as Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr. is set to unveil his phased approach to reopening the city’s public school system.

The pandemic forced Alexandria City Public Schools to send students home in March. Under the proposal the school system would open its doors to the city’s most vulnerable students starting next month. There are more than 400 students needing specialized instruction that would be phased into the school Between Nov. 5 and Nov. 30.

Per the plan, students with disabilities would go to Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 International Baccalaureate School, starting with kindergarten to second grade students on November 5. Third-fifth grade students would then be phased into the school in January.

Hutchings will also ask the Board to support the development of a virtual school learning option for PreK-12 families “choosing not to return to in-person learning for the foreseeable future.”

Starting in January, ACPS would also develop “Teaching and Learning Centers” for students in kindergarten through fifth grade at middle schools in the West and East Ends of the city.

On Thursday the Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent will be presenting the next phase of his reopening plan…
