Students attending Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) and Manassas City Public Schools (MCPS) are starting the upcoming year online.
The county School Board approved a Return to Learn Plan on Wednesday.
Online learning will be in place for the first quarter of the year, which runs from September 8 through October 30.
The county school system will think about offering in-person options for special education students, English Language Learners, and those who have “interrupted learning,” when appropriate, according to a release from PWCS.
Officials hope to begin teaching students in person at 50 percent capacity during the second quarter and also offer it virtually.
MCPS is also providing online learning as the school year begins, a decision the city School Board approved at a special meeting on Tuesday.
Data on community health will be looked over by the board each month, according to a District Announcement from Superintendent Kevin Newman. Some type of in-person learning is expected to resume when safe.
The Board also changed the school year start date to August 31, 2020.
