Accomack School Board to discuss reopening plan Tuesday night

Accomack County

ACCOMACK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Administrators in Accomack County will present their proposal for the new academic year at Tuesday night’s school board meeting.

The “Return to Learning” plan posted on the district’s website includes three phases to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic. The virus level in Accomack County has remained relatively low compared to other areas of the state, including Hampton Roads, after a major spike in cases earlier in the pandemic at Accomack’s two large chicken plants.

Phase 1 is mostly online learning, with options for in-person learning for special education and childcare for working families.

Phase 2 would still be mostly virtual/remote, with additional in-person learning for Pre-K-3rd grade and English language learning (ELL) students.
