POTELC Update: 7/15/20


Yesterday, July 14, the Charles County Board of Education voted to start the 2020-21 school year with virtual learning for all students, with a goal of transitioning to Phase 2 as quickly as possible. Phase 2 would include in-person instruction for special populations of students. The first day of the 2020-21 school year is Monday, August 31. For more information on the CCBOE decision on reopening schools with virtual learning, CLICK HERE


POTELC Plan for 2020-21 School Year


We are working quickly to create an environment for the children conducive to individual virtual learning, a private and quiet space, while adhering to the CDC and MSDE 6-feet physical distance requirements. We will organize the children by grade and ensure they are online and logged into their virtual classroom on time, and assist in keeping them organized throughout the day and answer questions as needed. Please know that we are investing in costly, but necessary, health mitigating factors in order to create this new environment for the school-age children.


  • Tuition for the POTELC B&As will remain the same at $195 per week per child. Although we will now be providing a virtual learning environment and support, the weekly tuition for B&As will remain the same.

  • Children in grades 2nd – 5th will be in the main B&A room.

  • Partitions will be installed in the B&A space to create individual learning spaces.

  • Learning labs for Kindergarten and 1st grade will be in the purple room.

  • We will be contacting each school for program information and guidance.


Items parents will need to supply for their child(ren) starting Aug. 31:

  • A laptop or tablet w/keyboard, headphones, and chargers must be provided for your child (labeled with his/her name) to remain at the center through the end of the school year.

  • Materials and school supplies you would typically purchase and send in to school for your child’s school year…please send those supplies with your child to POTELC.

  • Children 5 years and older should bring in their own face covering at the start of the school year.
