RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina delayed announcing statewide plans for reopening K-12 public schools. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper said he expects to release updated guidance “in the coming weeks.”
Schools were instructed in June to draft three plans for resuming fall classes, which include in-person and remote learning.
Cooper on Wednesday said his top priority is to get kids back into classrooms. The decision to postpone a decision on how best to reopen classrooms comes as new coronavirus cases hit a single-day high at 1,843.
Public health officials are still working on a plan to protect college students as campuses reopen across the state.
