VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - The governor has made his recommendations for reopening schools and Virginia Beach City Public Schools is adapting their plans to meet those guidelines.

VBCPS is now considering scenario two out of the three recommended by the governor, which will be a combination of virtual and face-to-face instruction.

VBCPS wants parent's feedback on how such a plan might affect student's and their families. You can fill out this survey by June 22.

Superintendent Dr. Aaron Spence says they're looking at teachers continuing to use Monday as a planning day and spending Tuesday-Friday with students who would report to their schools two full days per week.

Students would be provided assignments to support their learning on the three days in which they do not report to school, and those lessons could include paper, pencil, distance/virtual learning, or a combination.There are logistical considerations for class size and transportation to respect social distancing and cleaning procedures.

Officials say your participation is crucial for VBCPS to make sure they're providing the support you and your child need and to help finalize plans so the schools can get specific details about the 2020-21 school year.
