The governor’s office determines if NC public schools operate under one of the following plans:
- Plan A - all students may attend school face-to-face (F2F) daily
- Plan B - all students may attend school F2F part of the time, but not every day. On the days students are not in the school building, they will engage in remote learning.
- Plan C - no students may attend school F2F. All students will participate in school remotely.
When Plan B is selected by the governor, then our Board of Education determines how students will attend school. Following the most recent governor’s orders of a Plan A option for PreK-5 and Plan B for 6-12, our Board determined that students in grades PreK-5 would attend school daily, and students in grades 6-12 would attend school in two cohorts. Each cohort attends F2F two days and engages remotely three days each week . Based on the governor’s orders and/or Board of Education action, the current plan models can change at any time during the remainder of the school year. However, parents who select the virtual learning program will remain in virtual learning for the remainder of the school year regardless of the plan model selected.
Face-to-Face Instruction General Information
Elementary School Information (Grades K-5)
Elementary schools operate under legislated class size limits (no more than 21 in grades K-3), and teachers are assigned to either teach virtually or F2F based on the number of students at each school who select each option. Students who select F2F are given priority for classroom placement at each school. Regardless of whether you select the virtual program or F2F instruction, there is a possibility that your student will have a different teacher for the second semester. Classrooms filled to maximum capacity is a reality as long as K-5 operates in Plan A.
Middle School Information (Grades 6-8)
Teachers will teach in a hybrid model with classes composed of both students who are F2F and virtual, or teachers will teach in a complete virtual setting.
High School Information (Grades 9-12)
Teachers will teach in a hybrid model with classes composed of both students who are F2F and virtual.
