Superintendent to Present School Board with Update on Virtual/In-Person Learning

Alexandria City Public Schools Superintendent Gregory Hutchings, Jr. will present the school board with an update Thursday night on his continuity of learning plan to eventually bring back all elementary and middle school students to in-person classes.

All ACPS staff are also expected to complete an “Intent to Return” form by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, and the results of staff who plan to return will be made available by this Friday, according to ACPS. Students will also be required to fill out a form in late November or early December as to whether they plan on returning to in-person instruction.

Hutchings has presented a hybrid approach, and has told the board that the only feasible option to get kids back into classes safely is to hire significantly more teachers. Also, he says that students would only be able to attend school one day per week before alternating back to virtual instruction.

“We have 36 hours to tell the school board our stories,” one parent wrote online. “Together, our many voices can help drive our message to the school board that we need creative solutions to empower families to have a choice in when and how to safely return to school.”

Requests to make public comments at school board meetings can be made here.
