RICHMOND, Va. (WJHL) – The Virginia Department of Education has created a new tool for Virginians to see how school districts are starting the 2020-2021 school year.
The State Snapshot shows the 132 divisions broken up into five different reopening groups.
The five phases of reopening include:
- In-person (9 divisions)
- Partial In-Person (26 divisions)
- All Hybrid (26 divisions)
- Partial Hybrid (4 divisions)
- Fully Remote (67 divisions)
Of the nine divisions that are receiving fully in-person instruction, three are in Southwest Virginia. Buchanan County, Tazewell County and Bristol make up a third of the total localities receiving in-person instruction.
The majority of divisions in Virginia are returning to school with a fully remote plan.
56 divisions are returning to school in either a hybrid, partial hybrid or partial in-person plan.
In-Person is described as instruction for all students for four or more days of the week.
