What Will School Look Like In
Georgia THIS FALL?
Education During A Pandemic
As we encounter a new normal in education, many parents face challenges and choices in educating their children. Most schools around Georgia will either forego in-person instruction or provide a hybrid model. Many parents will be exploring alternatives to their local offerings. This is why we have put together resources to help you make informed choices this fall.
WHAT IS MY LOCAL SCHOOL’S PLAN?
HELP! Should I choose a virtual school for my child?
Should I send my child back to their regular school? Should I choose the virtual option from my local school district? Should I enroll my student in a full-time virtual school outside of my school district? There are so many options!
