Atlanta Public Schools has proposed opening the 2020-2021 school year utilizing a full virtual learning model on Aug. 24.

The Atlanta Board of Education approved moving the start date on first reading, during a special called meeting Monday evening.

The District’s plan, “Day One 2020 Return + Learn,” would move Day One for the 2020-2021 school year to Monday, Aug. 24 with schools offering virtual learning programs for all students, and reduce the District’s instructional days to 170 for the school year.

APS staff will start on Monday, Aug. 3, for two weeks of mostly virtual pre-planning with some in-person, small-group activities.

As part of this plan, beginning the week of Aug. 17, APS will conduct additional student assessments and get-to-know-you activities and set learning expectations for a strong start to an unconventional school year.

This model will be maintained for at least the first nine weeks of school, or until the spread of COVID-19 has been reduced to minimal or moderate.

District administrators will continue to monitor and evaluate the spread of COVID-19 in Atlanta and the metro area, to determine when and if a return to in-person instruction is safe.

The City of Atlanta has moved back to Stage 1 of its recovery process in light of the current COVID-19 trajectory.
