POSTED: April 1, 2020 – Governor Brian Kemp announced today that all K-12 schools in Georgia will remain closed for in-person instruction for the remainder of this school year. In keeping with this order, Atlanta Public Schools (APS) will remain closed for the remainder of this school year for in-person instruction. Our students and staff will continue teleschooling and teleworking for the remainder of the school year.
We will work on the impact of this decision, including exploring alternative scenarios to celebrate our 2020 graduates, and to address the loss of instructional learning time. APS will remain in contact with our families and staff as we work through solutions that address these concerns.
As soon as possible, the District will hold a virtual town hall to translate what this means for APS. Thank you for your patience as we work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
