LWV-VA Stands with All Those Who Grieve the Loss of George Floyd

The League of Women Voters of Virginia stands with millions of Americans in grieving the senseless murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Sean Reed, and countless other Black lives at the hands of law enforcement officers. These past few weeks have served as a stark reminder of this country’s pervasive systems of oppression and inequality. It’s also worth noting that these protests come in the midst of a pandemic that is affecting African-American communities at a drastically disproportionate rate.

However, it is not enough to simply grieve and mourn—we must all work to remove racist policies and continue to educate ourselves. We will continue to work to amplify Black voices and empower voters. "We also recognize that besides advocacy and protesting, voting is a powerful tool that we must exercise," stated Deb Wake, president of the League of Women Voters of Virginia. "It is our civic duty to vote." Check Vote411 to make sure your voter registration is up to date and so you can vote. It is your voice.

Loudoun County Public Schools update

❇️School Board Meeting Update❇️
Just one week after closing schools, we held a 5️⃣ hour Special School Board meeting last night. I am so proud of our school division for leading the way with closing schools. Our staff has been stellar in taking action to ensure students are being fed and preparing our teachers and students for distance learning. We appreciate the flexibility from all as we navigate uncharted territory and make modifications to address changing state guidelines and processes are improved. I am also grateful to be on a board that communicates, works together and truly listens to the community.

Meeting Highlights:
❇️Budget- we unanimously voted to use state funding to go toward teacher salaries as we previously promised in the prior budget meeting.
❇️Grades- For now, we are not grading any work and 3rd quarter grades are on hold until further notice. Principals will share information about AP classes and dual enrollment grading and distance learning expectations next week.
❇️Distance Learning-DOI created and posted a continuity of learning framework with dates and details for staff, parents, and students. Updates will be made and posted as we receive more information and direction from the state. I asked for staff to create a protocol to ensure all students are connected and have support. I was happy to hear a hotline is available to support teachers and students who are in need of support. Our IFT’s are also working hard to provide training and support for our teachers as they learn new technology platforms.
❇️Laptop Distribution- DDI is rolling out a plan to distribute Chromebook as early as next week. I asked for staff to create a protocol to ensure all students, especially our most at-risk and disadvantaged students in grades 3-12 receive a computer and hotspot. I also asked that staff provide a document for students and parents to include directions and safety precautions written in English and Spanish.
❇️Meals- Over 62,000 meals have been served by our LCPS staff in partnership with Loudoun Hunger Relief and Mobile Hope and many other organizations. Our bus drivers are delivering meals to bus stops to provide food to children without transportation. EVERY LCPS student is welcome to participate! The USDA is covering the cost of food. I asked for staff to look at the meal distribution data and if needed, create a plan to ensure students in our neediest communities are taking advantage this service.
❇️Mental Health Support- Staff is working on a protocol and information to support mental health outreach for our students and families. Look for more information soon.
❇️Waxpool Elementary Update- I asked Dr. Goodfriend to explain the protocol for testing staff at students at Waxpool after an employee tested positive for the virus. He confirmed no additional testing measures will be taken and students and staff who may have been in contact with the staff member should stay home and follow the standard protocol if they become symptomatic.
❇️Communication- I shared my concern about communicating with LCPS families who are homeless, have non English and Spanish reading parents, and families with no access to the internet or computers. Families facing these challenges are present throughout the county and will be the most negativity impacted by the school closure. It is vital that we provide them strong, proactive outreach with communication and support. I suggested all information and update are communicated through connected Ed phone calls and we have a outreach plan to ensure families are receiving updates and support.
❇️Emails and Communication- I encourage the community, staff and students to continue to reach out to the school board and school division. We are doing our best to respond and address your concerns. Your voice matters!

I will not comment or engage with posts from people who hide their identity, use my platform to post false information, name call and attempt to speak for me. There is a name for people like that!
