Students could return to school either virtually or two days a week under a proposal presented Monday evening to the Newport News School Board.
The board will decide Aug. 4.
They are not considering bringing students back full-time.
“We were well aware that we would not be able to accommodate 100% of our students reporting to our school buildings every day and continue to meet the safety guidelines necessary to keep staff and students,” Superintendent George Parker said.
Parker presented three options to the school board in the virtual meeting in a presentation that was still being tinkered with until shortly before the meeting started. The district is launching a student, family and staff survey Tuesday to collect more feedback.
The first is an all-virtual start for the first nine weeks of the semester, through Nov. 2. Families of special education students and those learning English might choose to participate
