George County School District accepting distancing learning non-medical applications for all interested students

The George County School District continues to monitor the daily release of information and recommendations surrounding Covid19.

Due to the heightened safety and health concerns surrounding the increase in the number of Covid19 cases in the surrounding area, school officials have reevaluated the application process for Distance Learning.

Effective immediately, George County School District will be accepting Distance Learning Non-Medical Applications from ALL interested students. Medical documentation is no longer required to apply for Distance Learning. The application may be picked up from your local school or downloaded from the district website. The completed application must be submitted to the local school no later than Thursday, July 30, 2020.

Parents are strongly encouraged to carefully read all of the application guidelines and requirements prior to making a decision.

Also, in an effort to allow teachers adequate time to prepare and train for the task of meeting the needs of both traditional and distance learning students, the school district has made the decision to change the return to school date for students.

Students who have chosen the traditional option and whose last names start with A-I will begin school on Wednesday, August 12. Students who have chosen the traditional option and whose last names start with J-Z will begin school on Thursday, August 13. All traditional students will attend on Friday, August 14.

Instruction will begin for approved distance learners on Monday, August 17, 2020. The return date for teachers and teacher assistants has not changed. Teachers and teacher assistants are still required to report on Monday, August 3, 2020.
