Now that Governor Roy Cooper has mandated Plan “B” for North Carolina’s Public Schools, 115 local school districts must adopt their own plans or choose to be remote only with all students learning from home all the time. So far, no school district has announced that plan.
Some school districts have developed their “B” plan and most likely all districts will opt for something similar to what these counties have already selected.
Most plans fall into three broad categories:
Elementary Focus: This emphasizes in-person instruction for younger grades and remote only for High School
Students divided in two groups and each group is in class two or three days a week
A/B alternate days to begin the year
A and B groups attending every other day or two days a week with remote learning on Wednesdays.
Will adopt A & B groups that attend 2 days one week and three days the following week
K-3 and 9-12 In Person 3 days per week. Remote 2 days per week.
4-8 In person 2 days per week. Remote 3 days per week
Students will go to school on a three-week rotating schedule. One week of in-person learning, then two weeks of remote learning
K-8 One week of in-person learning, then two weeks of remote learning
9-11 One week of in-person learning, then two weeks of remote learning (Monday-Thursday only)
12 Attend in person on Fridays
K-6 A-B groups 1 week in person. 1 week remote.
7-11 Remote only
12th-In person 1 day per week
K – 8 Daily in person
High School – Remote only
Under the revised option for Plan B:
- K-6th Daily in-person
- 7-9th A-B In person two days a week, remote three days a week
- 10th-12th remote only
