PRINCE GEORGE’S EDUCATION BRIEFS: Schools Reopening Update

Schools Chief Monica Goldson recently announced PGCPS’ plans to resume in-person teaching and learning this spring.

“In April, we will implement a hybrid learning schedule, where students can split their time between in-person and remote learning, and that families may opt into,” Goldson said in a press release. “We believe this plan prioritizes health, safety, equity and excellence.”

Families will have until Sunday, Feb. 28 to complete a survey regarding a hybrid learning model that will include staggered scheduling with students divided into two groups for in-person instruction on back-to-back days with appropriate social distancing in classrooms and throughout the school building.

The remaining three days will be spent in distance learning sessions each week.

On Thursday, April 8, Phase 1 instruction will begin with a two-day hybrid learning schedule for all special education students in kindergarten through 12th grade and for students in prekindergarten through sixth grade and 12th grade.

On Thursday, April 15, Phase 2 instruction will begin for all remaining seventh- through 11th-graders.

Dorothy Rowley – Washington Informer Staff Writer

I knew I had to become a writer when at age nine I scribbled a note to my younger brother’s teacher saying I thought she was being too hard on him in class. Well, the teacher immediately contacted my mother, and with tears in her eyes, profusely apologized. Of course, my embarrassed mother dealt with me – but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my passion for words and writing. Nowadays, as a “semi-retiree,” I continue to work for the Washington Informer as a staff writer. Aside from that, I keep busy creating quirky videos for YouTube, participating in an actor’s guild and being part of my church’s praise dance team and adult choir. I’m a regular fixture at the gym, and I like to take long road trips that have included fun-filled treks to Miami, Florida and Jackson, Mississippi. I’m poised to take to the road again in early 2017, headed for New Orleans, Louisiana. This proud grandmother of two – who absolutely adores interior decorating – did her undergraduate studies at Virginia Union University and graduate work at Virginia State University.
