Parents of Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) students can request to opt their child out of virtual instruction. Parents must complete the application linked below. The application closes at midnight on Friday, Sept. 4.
Click here to complete the application. Requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Parents cannot request a mix of online learning and recorded instruction. The application also was provided to parents by email last month.
School principals will receive a list of students approved for recorded instruction. Teachers will record lessons and share with students in individual StudentVue accounts. Recorded lessons are shared by teachers under the Class Website section of StudentVue.
Students will have 72 hours to watch a recorded lesson. Parents and students are not able to download recorded lessons. Students are counted as present and provided credit for participation.
Teachers will notify school administrators if a student approved for recorded instruction is not completing required assignments. Work submission expectations are the same for students completing recorded submissions. Students are responsible for submitting all assignments on time. Parents will be contacted by school administrators for a support meeting if their child is not completing and submitting assignments on time.
