Fairfax Co. Votes to Start Limited In-Person Classes in October

The Fairfax County School Board voted Tuesday night for allowing some students to resume in-person learning in October.

Fairfax County Schools Division Superintendent Brian Braband introduced the plan, calling for roughly 6,707 students and 653 teachers to participate in what the county calls in-person “cohorts,” WTOP reported.

County leaders said students identified as “in the greatest need of additional support” such as those taking career and technical education courses, pre-school autistic children and English language newcomers are those targeted for the in-person program, WTOP reported.

County officials said when schools reopen, social distancing will be enforced, staff and students will be required to wear face coverings, desks will be six feet apart and pupils will eat their meals in classrooms when feasible.

Parents will be requested to complete a form each day confirming a health screening before the child comes to school, while teachers will be asked about possible coronavirus symptoms and exposure. Schools also will check temperatures during the day, WTOP reported.
