PULASKI, Va. (WDBJ) - Tuesday, Pulaski County Public Schools presented a plan for reopening at its school board meeting. Both an instructional plan and a health plan have been developed.

The plan was formed by a taskforce of teachers, parents, students, counselors, administrators, school board members and school board office administrators. This 35-member taskforce met five times to come up with this plan in conjunction with the New River Health District Director Dr. Noelle Bissell.

The district created a four-step plan to gradually increase the number of elementary and high school students in the building at a time. It starts at 25 percent working slowly toward 100 percent capacity under Phase III guidelines.

At the new middle school, students will start by coming in for half a day, then transition to about a week of virtual learning. In-person classes are the final step.

At any time, any school can drop to Phase I, which is complete virtual learning, if there is a confirmed COVID-19 case in the building.

The district surveyed 82 students, 1,250 parents and 294 faculty and staff for this plan.

There will be an informational meeting on this plan Thursday at 6 p.m. on the PCPS Facebook Page.
