RADFORD – Radford City Public Schools will open all school buildings to all students who choose to participate in face to face learning four days a week beginning March 1.
Families must choose the learning platform they want their children to participate in for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year by Friday, Feb. 19. Parents can register their choice through a survey. RCPS has created three surveys – preschool, elementary, and secondary – and all families need to complete the appropriate survey for each of their school aged children – one survey for each child in the family.
There are two learning options for families to choose from for the remainder of the school year, which is set to end May 28.
- Option one – Face to Face Learning in the school building four days a week (Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday and Friday), accessing instruction in person at the school building during regular school
- Option two – Remote Learning at home four days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday),
accessing instruction/learning through asynchronous/synchronous lessons and assignments.
The Friday, Feb. 19 deadline is important because RCPS needs this information to revise bus routes, plan for school meals and ensure that mitigation strategies can remain in place regardless of the number of students and staff in the buildings beginning March 1. This is the last time RCPS will offer a change in learning platforms for the remainder of the school year. Once a student chooses their learning platform on the survey no changes will be made unless extenuating circumstances require a change. If you should have any question about the learning platforms, bus transportation, or the school meals program or need help accessing the survey, please contact your child’s school:
