Continuity of Learning Plan
Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is committed to ensuring all students receive quality instruction each day. This includes times when students are required to stay home following COVID-19 quarantine protocols, such as for an exposure, or COVID-19 isolation protocol for a positive diagnosis. Teachers and staff are charged with providing current and relevant instructional plans for students to access virtually while students are required to be out for COVID-19 protocols. Staff will also be available to assist or answer questions at assigned times.
Purpose and Goals
The purpose of this strategic plan is to establish academic support protocols for students who have been isolated or quarantined due to COVID-19. Our goals include the following:
- Provide academic support
- Minimize disruption to education attainment while quarantined
- Provide emotional support
- Assist with reintegrating to school routines upon return

Plan of Action
Upon notification from the parent, the case managers will notify teachers of the absence and request work. Students and parents will also be responsible for checking their respective teachers’ LMS pages for assignments, documents, links, etc.
Classroom teachers will provide work to students’ respective counselor within 48 hours of the request. They will also keep their LMS pages updated to reflect current assignments and any documents and/or links for students and parents to view.
