ACPS Express EXTRA EDITION 10/16/2020: Updated Phased Reopening Plans for Quarter 2
ACPS will expand its Virtual PLUS+ program to include up to 350 full-day spots for vulnerable students in the fall, thanks to new funding from the City of Alexandria.
Today, the Virtual PLUS+ Reopening Plan was submitted to the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), as required before the start of school on Sept. 8. See the full document.
The School Board has now approved the Virtual PLUS+ model for the fall. Virtual PLUS+ includes enhanced support in five key areas: learning, technology, child care, food access, and a live multilingual phone helpline. Learn more.
Following months of collaboration, ACPS has determined the most feasible reopening model to begin the 2020-21 academic year. Virtual PLUS+ is a robust online learning experience that will engage students 100% virtually and provide additional supports for students, staff and families. Take the Fall 2020 Reopening Supports Poll to let us know what support you need under this model.
