TOWSON, Md. — The Baltimore County Public School system is looking at 3 scenarios for the start of the fall semester.
A spokesperson for the district saying those scenarios are condition based, not time based.
The plan to reopen is a moving target for school boards all over the country.
During a virtual school board meeting Tuesday Night Superintendent Dr. Darryl Williams laid out his thoughts on next year.
“Not only do we have to address the teaching and learning, but the social well-being of our staff and students,” said a Williams. “To that end I’m leaning towards a virtual return with some type of phased in approach after we open. Perhaps looking at the transition years particularly those in Kindergarten, grade six and grade nine.”
The district outlined how they created the 3 plans from over 50,000 responded from union leaders, teachers, parents, and students.
BCPS School Board member Lisa Mack brought several questions she’s heard from parents to the meeting.
“People are asking questions like what is the remote learning going to look like? How many hours? Will they be graded assignments? Is attendance going to be required? Will students get comments on their assignments like essays?”
In the first scenario the district would continue with an enhanced version of Remote learning.
That would be if Maryland and Baltimore County are back in Phase 1 of reopening. Read more at WMAR
