Parents anxious about virtual learning as new school year starts

 ADHD In the News 09-11-2020

As Richmond Public Schools launches a new school year Tuesday, Sept. 8, with all virtual learning, parents and students are grappling with the reality of not having face-to-face instruction. Parents’ questions are very simple: Will RPS have adequate services and resources to keep my child on track academically and at the right grade level? Katima Melmx has two sons in RPS, both of whom will be 11th-graders at John Marshall High School. While her son, Marcus Brooks, 16, has John Marshall as his home school, he attends CodeRVA Regional High School. Her son, Kevaugha Brooks, 17, goes to the Richmond Technical Center. Both have Individualized Education Programs, or IEPs, focusing on learning through their attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. View Article: Richmond Free Press, September 3, 2020
