Distance Learning Program

Welcome to the Barrow County School System's Distance Learning. We’ve compiled information to help answer your questions about how distance learning will operate this upcoming school year. If you have questions, please contact your school administration.

BCSS leaders will continue to gather information from health officials and monitor the situation in Barrow County. That information will help determine when the district can safely open for in-person instruction. All students will begin the year in a distance learning environment for an indefinite period of time until it is deemed safe for students and staff to return using appropriate preventive measures and safety protocols.

In anticipation of needing to conduct all teaching virtually at some point this year, BCSS staff have worked diligently to improve the distance learning experience for students since last spring. Teacher professional development has focused on effective teaching and engagement in a digital environment.

Digital instruction this fall will look very different than it did in the spring. Expectations for teachers and students will be consistent with those for in-person instruction. The digital school day will follow a daily class schedule, Monday through Friday. Grading, attendance, and expectations for learning and mastery of content standards will be the model for all students.
