Summary: Tonight the superintendent will make a recommend a return-to-school stage for the third marking period which begins on February 1.

Tonight's recommendation is for information only and we ask the Board to take action on the recommendation at their next meeting.

The following factors will be considered in determining the school division's stage of operation:
• Current COVID-19 conditions in the Albemarle County region and within Albemarle County Public Schools, including, but not limited to, community transmission, testing positivity rates, and other public health data.
• Status of COVID-19 testing and tracking capabilities in the Albemarle County region.
• Guidance offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health authorities.
• Applicable executive orders and local ordinances that may impact our ability to provide successful classroom learning.
• The school division's ability, including staffing and resources, to implement our instructional and health plans.
• Feedback and input from stakeholders and school communities.
