When Fairfax Schools Reopen, More Than 2,000 Teachers Will Still Teach From Home
Fairfax County, Virginia, plans to partly reopen schools later this month, but some students will discover that they still have to receive lessons over their laptops.
That’s because 2,300 teachers have opted to continue teaching from home. To cover their absences, the district is hiring hundreds of classroom monitors: employees who will supervise students at their desks while they receive instruction from remote teachers.
“Classroom monitors are necessary to cover in-person classrooms for instructors who are teaching from home,” said the district in a statement.
Students will only be in school for two days each week, according to the district’s plan. Moreover, they won’t necessarily know whether their teacher intends to show up in person until they arrive at school, FOX 5 reported.
