Fairfax Co. School Board Votes to Start Hybrid Instruction by March 16: Report

The Fairfax County School Board voted Tuesday for all of its students to return in person for hybrid learning by March 16.

Fairfax County Schools Superintendent Scott Braband recommended the date Tuesday, though the Fairfax Education Association, which represents teachers and staffers, has opposed such a return until all staffers are fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

The school system said 65% of its staffers have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Plus, WRC reported the county health department never said all school system staffers had to be vaccinated in order for in-person instruction to resume.

School officials said the Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention support reopening schools for in-person instruction.

Braband said schools not properly staffed for in-person learning and those with numerous outbreaks may need to be shuttered.

As of Wednesday, the county has reported roughly 61,000 coronavirus cases — about 7,800 of which were residents 17 and younger — and 811 related deaths.
