Prince William Schools Resist Push for Virtual Option as COVID Cases Rise: Report

Prince William County Public Schools is holding firm against a push to allow the option for virtual instruction, even as a petition opposing the decision gains steam online.

Parents in the Virginia school district are increasingly calling for a virtual option, alarmed by rising coronavirus cases and school officials announcing that social distancing measures won’t be deployed indoors, InsideNova reported.

But schools spokeswoman Diana Gulotta told InsideNova Thursday that there are no plans to reopen the selection window, citing the need for advanced scheduling, staffing and budgeting.

Homebound learning is available for families with certain situations but those arrangements must be made through individual schools, not the division’s virtual learning program, InsideNova reported. School officials said 97% of students were planning to return to in-person instruction when classes starts later this month.
