Superintendent seeks feedback regarding back-to-school plan
District has plan for student learning to resume

 

Due to the Department of Public Health’s designation of Bulloch County as a Substantial Spread COVID-19 area on June 25, and Governor Brian Kemp's extension of a Public Health Emergency through August 11, Bulloch County Schools will adjust and take an approach that allows the school district to move forward with student learning while the community also faces the uncertainty of spread levels. This gives students the opportunity to resume learning as soon as possible.

 

The plan is for all students to resume school using the school district's virtual learning program.  It is possible that school will experience a delayed start (potentially August 17) to allow administrators time to prepare for this delivery method, especially for elementary grades, a change asked for by the Board at its June 25 meeting.  When Bulloch County is reclassified to a lower spread category, the school district will allow students (those who choose to do so) to return to a traditional, face-to-face school setting. Superintendent Charles Wilson presented a proposed plan to the Board of Education on June 11 and June 25, that would allow parents to choose between traditional face-to-face instruction and an all virtual learning program for grades 6-12. 

 

Bulloch County Schools wants community feedback about the return-to-school plan. If you or anyone you know has questions or comments about the school district’s draft return-to-school plans, please share this information with them.

 

Superintendent of Schools Charles Wilson will livestream two different sessions where he will address concerns from stakeholders and answer questions. These will be aired online on our website to the first 1000 viewers on the following days. Thereafter, the videos of each livestream will be posted to the website as well. This will allow the community to watch the sessions at anytime.

  • Thursday, July 2, at 9:00 a.m.; and 
  • Monday, July 6, at 3:00 p.m. 

There are two ways to submit questions and concerns for these sessions:

 

  • Submit questions via this online form which is available in English and Spanish; or Call 912.212.8512 to submit questions, if you do not have access to the Internet, Language Line translation services are available for any language.

Submit questions prior to noon on Wednesday, July 1, to be addressed in the superintendent’s session on Thursday, July 2, at 9:00 a.m., or submit questions prior to midnight on Sunday, July 5, to be addressed in the superintendent’s session on Monday, July 6, at 3:00 p.m.

 

Afterwards questions will be added to the school district’s COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions website.
