For the 2021- 2022 school year, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) is offering a full time virtual learning program for students in Pre-Kindergarten to grade 12. While the district is continuing to plan for a full return to in-person instruction for next school year, MCPS has heard from schools and the community that virtual learning has been an instructional model that has worked well for their students and families for a variety of reasons. The district’s virtual learning program, Montgomery Virtual, will be a centrally managed program and will partner with students’ home schools to provide the academic and social emotional support students need to thrive in virtual instruction.
While virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many students, others have thrived. The flexibility to work online from home has provided opportunities that support many family needs and the social-emotional needs of some students. For these reasons and more, MCPS is planning to improve online learning options.
