VDOE Q and A

 

Will new health and safety requirements related to COVID-19 impact electives and specials/resource course offerings for the 2020-2021 school year?

Decisions about elective course offerings are determined at the local division level and must adhere to requirements in the Standards of Accreditation (SOA) and Standards of Quality for Virginia Public Schools. There are no plans to waive requirements for any instructional program, including electives, specials and resource classes, required in the SOA. The Governor, in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) will issue health and safety requirements and guidance for Virginia public schools for the 2020-2021 school year. Once the Governor’s guidelines and requirements are released, both core and elective courses may need to evaluate and adjust curriculum in order to meet the guidelines. 

It is the VDOE’s position that divisions should ensure continuity of learning in core and elective classes whether students are instructed remotely, face-to-face, or with a hybrid approach. Elective courses in Virginia are important to the overall goals and mission for public education in Virginia and for the realization of the Profile of a Virginia Graduate. Elective courses can have an important role in promoting and maintaining student mental and physical wellness, as well as allowing students to continue preparing for workplace, college, and career goals. The VDOE staff can assist local divisions in developing solutions for challenges associated with Virginia's plan for reopening schools.

May 31 Principal's Note

Good afternoon, Holmes Families!

It has been a beautiful weekend!  These past few months have brought too much screen-time in the Barnes household, so we are taking a break this weekend and spending a lot of time outside and doing projects around the house.  

These past few days have also led to some difficult conversations with my little one around what she has seen when we have the news on and about the events that led to the protests that are taking place around the country.  While we have not allowed her to be totally immersed in the images, we have allowed her to be exposed to some of what is happening around us.  Even at her age, my husband and I feel a deep responsibility to speak with her honestly about our strong feelings against police violence.  As many of you know, my husband is an officer with the Fairfax County Police Department, so there are so many complicated emotions that we are navigating in our household:

  • We want our child to feel safe and be able to trust the law enforcement officers whose job it is to serve and protect our community
  • We want our child to know the heartbreaking truth and understand that sometimes there will be people who will make negative judgments about her just because of what she looks like and how important it is that she does not do that to others
  • We want our child to know how to speak out against what is wrong while also not allowing her "big feelings" to cause harm to others or property

I encourage you to speak openly with your child about what's happening around us (e.g., racism, the pandemic, economic hardship, etc.), as I know many of you are already doing.  Be sure to listen more than you talk to help them process those "big feelings".  There are a wealth of resources online to support parents with these difficult conversations, and there are a number of young adult novels that address the issues as well that would be good summer reading.
