    ACPS has adopted a Virtual PLUS+ model for this fall. After months of detailed planning, research and community engagement, we decided that Virtual PLUS+ is most feasible for the start of the 2020-21 academic year.

    The Virtual PLUS+ model puts the safety of our staff, students, and families at the forefront. Additionally, it takes into account the enormous logistical constraints posed by the global pandemic; input from our staff, students and families; and alignment with our ACPS strategic plan, Equity for All 2025. We are confident that through this framework we can deliver a robust, high-quality instructional program that ensures equity for all.
