Athletics, extracurricular activities suspended.
Frederick Md (KM) It will be virtual learning this fall for Frederick County Public School students. The Board of Education on Wednesday voted in favor of the full virtual format for the first semester of the 2020 and 2021 academic year. The Board says, in a statement, the School System continues to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting on the first day of classes on August 31st, students will be taking their lessons on line rather than in a classroom building. The School System says students will engage in real-time virtual instruction, instruction on an individual schedule, and completion of assigned tasks.
During the continuity of Learning Format adopted in the spring, students received grades of either Pass (P) or Incomplete (iCOL). But this upcoming semester, the School System expects more rigorous coursework and a full grading system in effect.
Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the Board of Ed agreed to suspend all athletics and extracurricular activities.
