    Online Resources for Students with Disabilities

    Beginning April 6, 2020, PGCPS will begin our continuity of learning program. During phase one (Monday, April 6 to Monday, April 13), staff will begin setting up virtual classrooms, reconnecting with K-12 families, and inviting students to their Google Classrooms. Online instruction will begin Tuesday, April 14. Educators will deliver virtual lessons, maintain communication with families and students, and provide support to students in need of assistance. Please note that in the distance learning structure, daily learning will not be equivalent to a six-hour day.

    Below, you will find printable Home Access Materials that may support your child as they participate in distance learning. In the Other Instructional Links section, you will find additional online resources.
