Agenda Item Summary:
Background: Since the closing of our school buildings resulting from the COVID-19 Pandemic, Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) continued to provide students and families with various educational opportunities. Our school division has provided students and families access to technology, learning materials, educational resources, meals, and support services during the crisis. As you know, our Enhanced Continuity of Learning Plan 1.0 addressed student and staff needs following the school buildings closing; Enhanced Continuity of Learning Plan 2.0 extended and redefined educational resources available to students, including both instructional packets, synchronous learning, asynchronous learning, and online lessons; Continuity of Learning Plan 3.0: Summer Learning through Engagement and Enrichment for All Plan addressed learning loss, engagement, and enrichment; and the Enhanced Continuity of Learning Plan 4.0: Reimagining Schools will guide the reopening of our schools.

The development of ACPS' Enhanced Continuity of Learning Plan 4.0: Reimagining Schools is aligned with global, national, federal, state, and local guidelines. The plan will ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for our students, staff, and families. As we work to reopen schools, it is critical that we continue to seek feedback from our leaders, staff, students, families, and community so that we can collectively put forth our very best ideas and actions for what is possible, achievable, and essential when reopening. Ultimately, the plan will address the feasibility of reopening schools and buildings.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the information within this brief in preparation for the School Board meeting on Friday, August 7, 2020.
