Monday is the start of a new phase for Fulton County Schools.
Superintendent Mike Looney says the fourth-largest school district in Georgia will begin Phase IV of its reopening plan Monday, which will allow 50% of students to return to school for in-person class instruction.
“Students have been split into two different groups,” Looney said. “The first group would come on a Monday and a Thursday; the second group would come on Tuesday and a Friday, with Wednesday being a cleaning day, a disinfecting day and, quite frankly, to give our teachers a little bit of a break.”
Looney says there’s no one-fit-all approach: Parents still have the option for their children to continue with remote learning. But under the new phase, 50% of students are eligible to return to class for face-to-face learning.
On Monday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Looney talks with host Rose Scott about how the district is putting the health and safety of students, staff and teachers first, the district’s reopening matrix and what students and parents can expect when the district reaches full-time face-to-face instruction.

The district initially said masks would be completely optional but updated its guidance in early August, noting an increase in cases in the district.
“Thank you for your partnership during this pandemic. Our ability to continue moving forward depends on all of us wearing masks, staying home when sick, and following all the other mitigation strategies recommended to reduce the spread of the virus. We remain committed to providing a safe learning environment while providing our students the very best educational opportunities.”
Here are the latest protocols for Fulton County’s 2021-2022 school year:
- All students, teachers and visitors in cities with high-transmission rate will be required to wear masks until the level of spread drops. As of August 4, 13 of the 14 cities in Fulton County exceeded levels that are considered high-community spread. A complete list of affected schools can be found here and will be updated weekly.
- Schools located in municipalities where the rate of infection exceeds 100 per 100,000 residents will require all students, personnel, and visitors to wear masks until such time as the level of spread drops. Data will be taken from the FCBOH Epidemiology Reports.
- Any FCS school or facility located within a jurisdiction where the state, county, or municipality requires a mask to be worn in public spaces will honor such orders until such time as it has expired.
- The district will provide students, visitors, and employees with masks meeting the criteria established by the CDC to include N95, KN95, multi-layered cloth washable, and approved disposable masks.

New 3DE Magnet Program. Tri-Cities High School becomes the third FCS high school to offer the 3DE program. The program is starting off the year with more than 170 students.
CTAE Expansion. FCS is in the introductory phase of planning expanded CTAE (Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education) elementary programs by identifying and writing curriculum, standards, lessons and projects for focus areas. The district is adding new courses to the sixth grade CTAE curriculum: Culinary Arts and Agriculture. Middle schools will be able to customize the CTAE Engage course experience so that it aligns with the pathways offered at their respective high school.
Curriculum Hub. A Curriculum Hub has been created to provide parents with easy access to English/Language Arts/Reading, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies resources. The hub can be accessed here.
Frog Street. Beginning this year, Frog Street will be introduced at the elementary school level in each of the FCS Pre-Kindergarten classes. Frog Street is a comprehensive, research-based program that integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines. It was recently approved by Bright from the Start and is aligned with the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS).
NWEA MAP. FCS will use the Northwest Evaluation Association Measures of Academic Progress (NWEA MAP) as a nationally norm-referenced assessment for grades 2, 4, and 7. The MAP assessment will be administered in October, with NWEA MAP Growth used as the universal screener for students in Grades 9-12. MAP will be used to benchmark student achievement against the nation and used for gifted eligibility in the area of achievement.
During remote learning, FCS expanded the number of one-to-one devices issued to students. The district will continue this and will issue devices to all students grades 3-12 and provide classroom access for all PK-2nd grade classrooms. As we come back into the school year, students will retain the devices issued last year and check in with their school or new FCS school if they advanced to a new grade level or have moved within the district.
Safety & Security
Community Policing Division. The FCS Police Department launched its Community Policing Division in April to strengthen community outreach and provide student mentorship. As part of this new effort, a Police Athletic League (PAL) and a ‘Cookies and Cops’ program will help foster positive relationships between elementary school students and officers. Additionally, a gang intelligence unit is being developed to combat this issue in the community.
Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). Late last school year, the FCS Police Department began using Small-Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) in large event surveillance, training operations, and critical incident intervention and response. Approximately 20 FCS police officers are becoming certified in using the drone aircrafts.
Digital Video Surveillance Systems. Progress towards upgrading the video camera system for our schools continues. Last school year, 14 schools had cameras and video servers updated to Avigilon’s digital video surveillance system. Another group of 14 schools will have new cameras installed and updated this year.
Asthma Friendly Schools. Due to the efforts of the FCS Office of Health Services, Fulton County Schools is now one of only nine Georgia school districts to be certified as an Asthma Friendly school district. To be recognized, FCS had to adopt and implement policies and procedures related to asthma management, which provides a safe and healthy environment for students with asthma-related illnesses. In addition, the district has been awarded a $50,000 Asthma Initiative grant from Healthcare Georgia Foundation, Inc. The one-year grant will allow the FCS Health Services team to enhance school-based education and care coordination of students with asthma.
School-Based Health Centers Re-opening. The school-based health centers at Lake Forest Elementary School and College Park Elementary School will re-open. The centers had closed temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which limited visitors in schools.
Bus Fleet Ready to Roll. The Transportation department is prepared to have 704 route buses rolling to serve the students of Fulton County on the first day of school. Thirty-two new drivers were hired to meet the staffing targets set for the new year, ensuring that every FCS bus has an assigned driver.
New Propane-Powered Buses with Seat Belts. Of the entire fleet, 521 buses are propane-powered with 3-point seat belts. This is part of the district’s commitment to replace aging diesel vehicles with buses that are safer for students, more cost effective to operate, and friendlier to the environment.
School Kitchens Heating Up. The School Nutrition Program will have all 97 commercial kitchens operating on the first day of school so that students can receive breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Approximately 71,000 meals will be served every day this school year.
Dorofeev learned from this leaflet found in Surganov's case from his personal biography thirty years ago that a certain Kozlov Vasily Ivanovich bothered. Andrei Surganov quite a lot, while studying with him at the GPTU-30 of the city of Divnogorsk.
Where Surganov was simply under a hammer and a hard place, as he could not stand up for himself as a man. He was weak-willed and cowardly and suffered from the hands of fellow students as in the past at school there, at that school from this Kozlov sickly.

Going to the mirror, I saw a short, pretty girl with brown hair about to her shoulder blades, braided into a braid. The facial features were correct, the eyes were of an unusual emerald color, and not just green, but just like a gem with a similar radiance. A slightly upturned nose and plump lips on a slightly rounded baby's face looked especially cute.

First, the neck, then with smooth movements, moved her hands to her shoulders and finally touched her chest. She carefully and very gently crumpled her beautiful mounds, not missing a millimeter, slowly rubbing the cream. From such caresses, her nipples tensed and slightly increased, she crumpled them sometimes pinching. Hands rolled down, rubbing the stomach, playing a little with the ring in the navel, the right hand slid down and the middle finger was in the vagina, the left.
Hand returned to the chest, remembering it with rhythmic movements.
