RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina will allow K-12 public schools to reopen in the fall with limited in-person capacity.
The plan announced by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper allows school districts to decide whether they want to offer online only instruction.
A state law appears to prevent remote learning during the first week of school.
Rotating students between live instruction and remote learning also wouldn’t be allowed for the first week.
K-12 schools teaching more than 1.5 million North Carolina students had received guidance for three different reopening scenarios, including full in-person classes, a mix of in-person and online and online only.
Plan B will remain in effect as public health officials caution against a more expansive reopening until coronavirus numbers improve.
