The head of Atlanta Public Schools will recommend that schools open virtually with a new start date of August 24, the district said Friday.
Superintendent Lisa Herring “will recommend school open virtually with a new start date of August 24. August 3-21 will be used for pre-planning,” the district said on Facebook.
Herring, who began her new role on July 1, will present a strategy for reopening on Monday during a school board meeting.
APS originally intended to start the school year on August 10.
