Distance Learning Plan - The Future of Distance Learning
FCPS continues to refine and improve processes and practices in order to provide high quality services to students and families in the future.
The Future of Distance Learning
As the COVID-19 global pandemic unfolds, FCPS joins educational leaders around the nation in recognizing that changes to instructional delivery formats impact our students and staff significantly. Our division is working to develop and improve processes and practices that can continue providing effective academic, social-emotional, and comprehensive services for students and families. These plans account for the possibility that we will see ongoing interruptions to face-to-face schooling in the months ahead.
Lessons learned from distance learning in spring 2020 will allow FCPS to continue refining and improving our ability to flexibly and nimbly provide ongoing, high-quality services for the students and families that rely on us. As we look ahead to the future of distance learning in FCPS, we reaffirm our commitment to creating learning environments that promote Portrait of a Graduate values while strengthening our relationships with students and supporting their social-emotional and wellness needs. Part of this commitment includes exploring ways in which we can extend technology and internet access to all students and families to support flexible learning models in the coming months. FCPS leaders will continue to engage with families and community stakeholders to effectively build and communicate plans and scenarios for summer and the upcoming school year.
