FCPS Grading Expectations During Distance Learning 


  • Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) does not recommend grading work completed during school closure


  • For FCPS elementary schools, nothing is graded after 3/13 (day of closure) for 3rd quarter


  • No fourth quarter grades will be assigned due to equity issues of access to technology and limited student ability to submit work during distance learning


FCPS Grade Level Promotion Expectations 


  • VDOE flexibility will ensure that students who were on-track as the school closure date, 3/13/2020, will be promoted to the next grade level.


  • Superintendent Brabrand told the Board that, “We plan to err on the side of the student when it comes to graduation and promotion to the next grade.”
