Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
On March 23, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam ordered that all K-12 schools close for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19. This announcement was an extension of the earlier closure order issued by Governor Northam on March 13, 2020. Recognizing that the extended closure impacts students that were enrolled in a high school credit-bearing course in the spring of 2020, the Board of Education has put forth emergency guidelines on locally-awarded verified credits for high school credit bearing courses that students were enrolled in during the spring of 2020. These emergency guidelines are meant to supplement the Guidance Document Governing Certain Provisions of the Regulations Establishing Standards For Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia as revised by the Board of Education in May 2019 and are in effect only for courses students were enrolled in during spring 2020. The original Guidance Document Governing Certain Provisions of the Regulations Establishing Standards For Accrediting Public Schools in Virginia remains in effect for the purpose of awarding locally-awarded verified credits for students enrolled in high school credit-bearing courses prior to or following spring of 2020. If a declared state or local state of emergency overlaps scheduled instruction for the summer 2020 term, these emergency guidelines will also apply to courses that students were enrolled in during the summer 2020 term. Due to the declared state of emergency, these emergency guidelines are effective immediately, April 2, 2020.
