Graduated return to in-person learning
District leadership also announced that the return to in-person learning will be graduated. Rather than starting all students back on the same day, consideration will be given to students who have never been in their schools before and those who may need more time to learn routines.
FCPS COVID-19 In-Person Learning Matrix
District leaders have developed the Fayette County Public Schools COVID-19 In-Person Learning Matrix, which provides specific metrics outlining when students will be able to return to campus. The tool, which builds on the state's color-coded incidence rate map, includes five stages based on the average daily COVID-19 cases in Fayette County. The method also incorporates orders from the Governor, student and staff absences, isolations and quarantines, operations and support considerations, community vs. institutional spread, community trends and vaccine uptake.
