Amherst County Public Schools allows families to choose between 100% in-person, virtual learning for 2021-22

Back to School

AMHERST COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Families in the Amherst County Public Schools community will need to make a big decision over the next few weeks about the 2021-2022 school year.

The school district plans to have two options for students in the coming school year: five days a week of in-person learning or five days a week of virtual learning.

This comes after Superintendent Dr. Robert Arnold presented recommendations for the upcoming academic year during the Amherst County School Board meeting on Thursday, May 13.

“We strongly encourage everyone to come back in person but understand that some families may prefer or need to remain virtual for health reasons,” Amherst County Public Schools said in a Facebook post on Tuesday, May 18.

If you want your student(s) to come back to school in person in the fall, you do not need to do anything because in-person instruction is the default option.

However, if you want your student(s) to learn virtually, you need to fill out the 2021-22 ACPS 100% Virtual Learning Request Form by June 11.
