Last week, during our June board meeting, the Superintendent announced that we would be asking parents to choose between a “Face-to-Face” or “Full Remote” learning model for the first semester of the 2020-2021 school year.
In anticipation of Thursday, July 2’s special called Board of Education meeting, the District has decided to postpone the window for parents to select a model for the upcoming school year.
Students and parents will be notified of an updated timeline to make their decision, with details concerning the 2020-2021 school year, as soon as it becomes available.
The Superintendent and District staff remain in close conversation with public health officials and remain committed to decision-making which prioritizes student and staff safety while giving families the flexibility to make choices that are best for them.
On Monday, June 29th, Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order which renewed the public health state of emergency in the state of Georgia. In addition, Governor Kemp has requested the State Board of Education to provide “rules, regulations, and guidance for the operation of public elementary and secondary schools for local boards of education.“
Cobb staff will continue to review updated guidance as it is received and will update back-to-school details and content, including this podcast, accordingly. Due to the constantly changing nature of the ongoing pandemic, please understand that this information is up-to-date as of today.
Thank you for your patience and continued partnership with the Cobb County School District during this unpredictable time.
