DCPS to Remain at Least Partially Virtual Next Year, Schools Chief Says

D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Lewis Ferebee said virtual learning will continue through the 2022 school year.

“While we are taking steps to bring more students back to the classroom, we also know that virtual learning will remain part of a DCPS education this school year and next,” Ferebee said in a Feb. 25 tweet. “That’s why today our educators are participating in a ‘Virtual Learning Conference” to explore ways to enhance our virtual learning practices.”

The debate on students’ reentering the classroom has raged for months. Many are pushing for DCPS’ return to pre-pandemic learning, while others want to keep children enrolled in virtual learning programs in light of research suggesting online learning can increase retention of information.
