The day after Gov. Roy Cooper announced that a decision on how to re-open North Carolina’s public schools is still a few weeks away, Dare Schools Superintendent John Farrelly sent an email to families informing them of a survey they will be getting on Tuesday, July 7. The survey will seek their input on what kind of a “Plan B” option they prefer.
Plan B, currently one of three options under consideration, is a hybrid system that would involve some combination of in-person and remote learning.
Here is Farrelly’s email:
- Governor Cooper announced yesterday that he is going to wait “a couple of weeks” before making an announcement on which plan NC public schools will reopen under (Plan A- traditional, Plan B -50% capacity, or Plan C remote learning only).
- The Governor’s new Executive Order (147) runs through July 17 and maintains the mass gatherings limit of 25 people in outdoor venues. This means that DCS will not be in a position to consider offering another HS graduation program option.
- DCS will be sending surveys to parents and staffon Tuesday, July 7to get your feedback on the various plans under “Plan B” that we are considering following the state’s reopening of school options. Please keep in mind that if the Governor chooses to open with “Plan B” that building capacity is limited to 50% student capacity. Included in our survey is a virtual school option where students can work from home virtually in the first semester. This option is similar to remote learning but will feature mandatory attendance and a full school day. Look for an email on Tuesday with the survey link, we value and need your feedback.
