Several Northern Virginia school systems have announced their fall plans. However, Alexandria City Public Schools is still working on developing how it intends to restart learning during the coronavirus pandemic. Schools Superintendent Dr. Gregory Hutchings Jr. said, “Whether it’s a hybrid approach or not, we’re looking at are we able to meet the CDC requirements to keep our staff and students safe." According to wtop.com, "The school system recently conducted a survey. The results indicated that 60% of parents support a hybrid plan, which mixes in-person learning time with online instruction. Other parents are not ready for their kids to return to class, with 40% calling for full-time distance learning. Hutchings said one of the most difficult elements of developing a plan is that it needs to take into account the different instructional needs of the city’s diverse population of students." As per wtop.com, "For teachers, Hutchings said, additional training for online learning also needs to be discussed, since teaching online is something most teachers didn’t cover while in school. Also, he said guidelines for what is expected of teachers during online learning days are also being determined. Hutchings pointed out that while other school systems in Northern Virginia have announced their preliminary plan, waiting to do the same in Alexandria until all information can be reviewed will lessen the chance for plans needing to be changed."
