PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY, MD — Two weeks after committing to online classes until at least 2021, Prince George’s County Public Schools announced its distance learning plan Monday afternoon. The proposal includes live instruction, independent practice and Chromebooks for every student.
“I understand that there is no perfect solution,” school system CEO Monica Goldson said in letter attached to the plan. “Our next steps will be guided by our goal of protecting and enriching the entire PGCPS community.”
Students’ class schedules will be available on SchoolMax, the system’s e-learning platform, on Aug. 21. These virtual schedules will flow much like a typical school day.
Each day will start at 8 a.m. and have four periods. Elementary school students will have live lessons in all four classes. Middle and high school students will get a mixture of live and prerecorded instruction. Whether lessons are real-time or taped, teachers will take attendance
