FCPS board and superintendent are liars

"The changing course of the COVID-19 pandemic with infection rates surging both nationally and regionally has required us to alter our plans for school year 2020"

Fairfax County cases have been trending downward for weeks. Our daily new case rate is extremely low considering our county population.

They are liars. The data shows we are doing great in the counry. We are NOT surging regionally. That is a blatant lie that looking at the state Fairfax county data page proves we are doing better than practically any county in the country. Yet they lie to us, to prove to their precious party that funds their political election campaign, that they will go along with whatever the party tells them to.

Most parents chose the in person schooling.

Most people, who pay your salaries, want the hybrid in school, which is better than your failed online virtual fiasco.

People, PLEASE vote this school board out. They are idiots!!!

Agree with your main points.

I do think though that even the hybrid model is not great.

There is no good reason not to have the students go back into the classroom this fall. Almost all of the European democracies are sending their students back to school.

The risk to students from this Wuhan Chicom Covid-19 virus is lower than the risk to students from a typical seasonal flu. Are we going to close schools for the seasonal flu every year?

The risk to teachers is higher, but still very low for those under 50, a little bit higher for those over 50, and higher still for teachers over 60. Still it's not really high for those teachers under 75. Without specific medical issues making them more susceptible teachers under 75 still have lower risk than from a typical seasonal flu.

Obviously accommodations would have to be made for students, teachers, and staff who had medical conditions that made them much more vulnerable. They could do things remotely.

I'm glad that my kids have graduated from FCPS and I don't have to deal with the impossible situation that the hysterical or selfish teachers are inflicting on students and parents.

The school board and commissioner should be soundly sued for dereliction of duty, nonfeasance, misfeasance, malfeasance, and so forth.

While some of the finest public servants around are the good teachers in public schools, the unions have corrupted the situation to where I hope that public schools will destroy themselves and be replaced by private schools paid by tax dollars to educate the kids that the public schools have been letting down.

It looks like the distance learning only option is designed to hold down the risk to teachers and staff while subjecting the students to much greater risks:
the risk of falling behind academically, the increased risk of suicide and boredom-induced dysfunctional behavior (drugs, drinking).

They are hurting the kids to "save" the adults. It's outrageous. A tail wagging the dog. School is supposed to teach the children. Teachers are needed, but the system is supposed to be designed for students, not designed so no-show teachers can get a full-day's pay for emailing a few computer links to students essentially left high and dry.

Who wants to bet that coverage of Covid and the pushes to shut down schools, churchs, and the like fade to nothing after the election or at least after the Inauguration in January, especially in the unlikely event that Slow Joe Biden wins the election and his puppet-masters assume presidential powers that he is too old or mentally disabled to utilize.

Google liability and schools and infectious disease to understand why putting children in a classroom can be unconstitutional.

Greetings Taxpayers,

I thought you might enjoy some insider information I have from working with SuperNintendo Brabrand. He has squirmed his way through a few town hall sessions now and managed to do his typical mealymouthed non-answering thing. Lets get to some real answers:

1. FCPS is not reopening in the fall. Why do you think the return of students was pushed back until Sept. 8th? It's so the schools have cover when they magically discover Covid still exists and spreads in filthy schools. He'll make the announcement that because of "a recent outbreak" he's making the "difficult decision" to do all virtual learning.

2. Giving the parents choice about sending their kids back to school wasn't about choice, it was about liability. If you elected to send your kids back to FCPS and they get sick, it was your choice-thus limiting the liability of FCPS. That's why they would never make it mandatory. When schools do actually reopen (probably spring) they will retain parental choice to limit liability.

3. There isn't enough PPE and cleaning supplies to actually open the schools. They have made "staggered orders" of cleaning supplies and PPE. This means that there is enough cleaning supplies for a week or two of operation- and that's it. The rest of the supplies aren't even available and are on backorder. FCPS does have huge orders of supplies but they're not scheduled for delivery until the end of October. IF you work for FCPS, just go look in a supply closet. Let us know if you see it filled with cleaning supplies...

4. So why don't they just let parents know now so they can plan for 100% virtual?

Because parents are idiots and FCPS is a big ole group of cowards. Parents want babysitting to happen no matter what the risk is because they raise insufferable children. They would hee and haw if Brabrand told them the actual plan of 100% virtual in the fall. Nobody wants to deal with that so they smile and nod and tell you what you want to hear.

Parents think the job of the schools is to: raise their children, provide free babysitting, provide food, provide computers, provide internet, provide free therapy, etc. Parents have completely unrealistic expectations about what a school can/should do for students. Since fall will be all virtual, you're going to need to figure out who is going to watch your kids during the day. They will be EDUCATED using the FINEST distance learning software money can buy. Plan accordingly.

notice how coy and nonchalent these liberal bed wetters are about robbing children of their youth

they act like they are oblivious to the lower income folks who have to work all day

rich people(who most of them have inherited their wealth) can stay home and homeschool

its just going to make low income children dumbed down

way to go democrats..kill yourself...at the end of the day you promote white domination

May not be the same person but this WAS posted, in another thread, before FCPS changed their mind.

Finest distance learning! This from the system that failed miserably last spring at its distance learning efforts, and then threw up its hands and walked away.

I have faith that FCPS's technical people will be able to figure out how to shut down student audio and visual input to avoid what we saw last spring. Beyond that I think what you will be seeing is an arrangement that will be pushing information out from the teachers to the students, but which has yet to work out how to evaluate the students on their ability to absorb, remember and use that information. That evaluation process is what education is about. If a school system is not willing to make the effort to test students on their mastery of the material or hold those students accountable if they have not sufficiently mastered it, there are far less expensive ways of going.

You are probably correct that there was no real plan to open up FCPS to broad based in person education in the fall. I suspect there was the hope in FCPS that so many parents would opt for distance learning that the FCPS could limit its in person classes to essentially Special Needs, ESL and Title 1 students. You don't have to be an FCPS insider to have heard statements indicating FCPS administration was hoping that the numbers of parents wanting in class education would be small.

And give the parents the money they spend for home schools and private schools if you have to go to the US Supreme court in a class action suit to get it back

how many school systems across the country have gone virtual? There are about 14,000 public school districts in this country. Tell us how many are all virtual. Don't forget to provide a link with proof.

August 20, 2021

Dear FCPS Families and Community,

We are looking forward to seeing all our students for five days of in-person learning starting August 23.

We are confident that, combined with our continued commitment to layered prevention strategies, our school buildings will remain safe and healthy. To strengthen these layered prevention strategies even further, this fall, FCPS will be requiring all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or submit routine negative COVID-19 tests. The requirement will go into effect in October, with additional details being rolled out in the coming weeks.

FCPS continues to encourage vaccination for everyone, including students, as soon as they are eligible. This summer, Fairfax County has seen vaccination rates for our young people soar. We have some of the highest vaccination rates across the country for this age group.

Among youth ages 12-15 in Fairfax County, 61.9% are fully vaccinated – up 24.2 points since July, while 75.3% have had one dose – up 19.4 points since July. Of 16-17-year-olds, 74.4% are fully vaccinated, while 84.8% have received one dose.

If you or your child would like to be vaccinated, vaccination opportunities can be accessed through the Fairfax County Health Department or Vaccines.gov. COVID-19 vaccines are accessible and free.

Thank you for working with us to start the school year strong.

Sincerely,


Scott S. Brabrand
Superintendent
