Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance
So that families and students can plan ahead, the Prince William County School Board at its March 17 meeting asked Dr. Steven Walts to develop a five-day-a-week in-person learning proposal for students beginning the 2021-22 school year. He will present it at the May 5 meeting of the Board.
