The Queen Anne’s County Public Schools (QACPS) District Continuity of Learning Plan is designed to support the educational process during the extended school closure period due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the district plan is structured around three phases of a continuous improvement model which has three core elements: (1) plan and organize, (2) implement and support, and (3) evaluate and adjust. In particular, the continuity of learning plan focuses on delivering learning in a variety of ways, leveraging the tools and resources available to students and families, and accounting for the support they require. It does not seek to replicate the daily classroom experience as courses and content may not be taught live at a certain time on a particular day as students and families are accustomed to on a regular basis. Finally, during this period of time of extended closure, our aim is to provide continuity of learning for students by keeping them engaged and moving forward in their learning progression. Teachers are expected to provide meaningful learning activities that will maintain and extend students’ knowledge and skills.
