Small groups of D.C. Public Schools students are being prepared to soon return to in-person learning amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, administrators said Monday.

Schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee added that while some of DCPS’ 51,000 students will continue with virtual classes, they will receive additional in-person learning that could include tutoring, physical education and career and technical education, DCist reported.

D.C. public charter schools, which educate about 49 percent of the city’s public school students, are already providing in-person learning for small groups of students, DCist reported.

Mayor Muriel Bowser wants DCPS to offer a mix of in-person and virtual learning by the time the second grading quarter begins on Nov. 9.
