Wake County Public School System School Board unanimously voted to adopt a reopening plan called the “Plan B Transition,” meaning students will start the school year online, then eventually transition to some in-person classes at a time to be decided later.
Superintendent Cathy Moore proposed the plan earlier in the meeting. “We are not sure how long we will remain in online instruction, We do believe that this pivot, this shift in Plan B, will allow us to implement a slower and more strategic reopen and reentry of students into our schools,” Moore said.
“It’s not a permanent online situation, we’re looking after Labor Day looking to phase in some students starting with our Pre-K and regional special ed programs on September 8th,” said Keith Sutton, Chairman of the Wake County School Board. “It is our goal to get students back into the building face to face as soon as possible but again doing so while it’s practical, healthy, and reasonable to do so.”
Wake County states that they intend to hold students at a higher standard during online schooling, saying that this is because they did not have the time to do so in March when everything was rushed to happen.
