Baltimore County Public Schools is committed to providing full-time, in-school instruction, five days a week, for all students during the 2021-2022 school year, pending the latest health and safety guidelines.
However, for those families for whom full-time, in-person learning is not an option, BCPS will offer a Virtual Learning Program for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. The BCPS Virtual Learning Program will provide full-time virtual instruction from BCPS staff, including live (synchronous) instruction and anytime (asynchronous) learning.
Students enrolling in the BCPS Virtual Learning Program will also remain enrolled in their BCPS school. As a BCPS student, they may participate in meals, sports, extracurricular activities, and other opportunities.
Families interested in the Virtual Learning Program are invited to attend a Family Information Session to learn more about the program’s benefits and limitations (such as which classes will be available). No registration is required for the online information sessions, and links for the sessions are provided in this release.
Sessions will be offered:
Wednesday, May 19, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. — Virtual Learning Program Family Information Session in English
Thursday, May 20, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. – Virtual Learning Program Family Information Session in Spanish
Thursday, May 20, from 6 – 7 p.m. – Virtual Learning Program Family Information Session – multilingual (The meeting code for this session is BCPSmulti, and participants must use a BCPS student email address to log in. Translators will be available to assist with Arabic, Chinese, Nepali, and Urdu. Other languages available by request to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
In addition to the information sessions, families can send questions to VLP@bcps.org at any time.
Registration for the Virtual Learning Program will take place from Wednesday, May 19, through Friday, May 28. Families who register for the Virtual Learning Program will be asked to commit for the full school year.
