TOWSON, MD—Registration is now open for Baltimore County Public Schools’ Virtual Learning Program for the 2021-2022 school year. Family Information Sessions about the program will take place on Wednesday evening and Thursday evening.
“The Virtual Learning Program is an option for those families that need it,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “We are looking forward to seeing the vast majority of our students back in their classrooms, full-time, five days a week throughout the 2021-2022 school year — pending the latest health and safety guidelines.“
The BCPS Virtual Learning Program, for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12, 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.
Online registration for the Virtual Learning Program will take place from Wednesday, May 19, through Monday, May 31. Families who register for the Virtual Learning Program will be asked to commit for the full school year. A list of courses that will NOT be offered in the Virtual Learning Program is available.
