APS is planning to start the 2020-2021 school year on August 10 with the health and safety of our students and staff as the top priority. As the district prepares for potential reopening scenarios, APS wants to hear from parents.
Currently, APS is considering three potential scenarios for reopening schools: virtual, traditional, or a hybrid of both.
A survey was sent to parents and caregivers of students in the District, and is accessible to community members as well. The survey may be found on the APS website, as well as here:
English – https://bit.ly/APS2020Survey
Spanish – https://bit.ly/APS2020Spanish
Additionally, the District is scheduled to host virtual town halls to gather feedback on the three potential scenarios for reopening schools.
The town hall discussions are scheduled for Thursday, June 18, at noon in English, and Monday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m., in Spanish and English. Both will be held on Facebook Live: @AtlantaPublicSchools | www.facebook.com/AtlantaPublicSchools
The community is invited to join the discussion to learn more about these potential scenarios and share their questions, comments, or concerns. Town Hall participants include Dr. Lisa Herring, incoming Superintendent of Atlanta Public Schools, and members of the APS COVID-19 Task Force. Mariela Romero, Univision’s Regional Community Empowerment Director, will facilitate the Spanish-language Town Hall on June 22.
APS will announce a final decision on its reopening plan in early to mid-July, in accordance with the public health determinations available at that time.
