Safe Restart Headlines
CCSD Nutrition Services Department has announced options to serve students in face-to-face settings and those who are attending virtually.
If the steady reduction of COVID-19 incidence rates in Charleston County continues, the CCSD Board of Trustees hopes to approve in-person instruction for all students and families who desire that option by the end of September. In the meantime, due to the current conditions, it is necessary to begin the school year with fewer in-person students.
Safe Restart News
CCSD will offer two options:
a) The in-person school that will begin Sept. 8 with actual in-person instruction (subject to a sustained downward reduction in COVID-19 infection rates) or temporary stay-at-home remote instruction if parents prefer to start the school year in remote mode;
b) The K-12 Virtual Academy, which entails a 9-week commitment for K-8 students and a semester commitment for high school students.
Both temporary and virtual remote instruction will include intermittent in-person check-ins with students by teachers.
In-person student presence at school may occur for parents and teachers who are comfortable with this option, (not expected to exceed 20-25% of normal school capacity) as determined by each school's current medical metrics and logistical considerations.
Charleston County must see a downward trend in COVID-19 rates over a 14-day period before the Board will consider changing the operating mode. Data will be reviewed every two weeks by staff; monthly by Board.
