The North Carolina Beat has received confirmation that the North Carolina Public School system is expected to close for the remainder of the year.
In a recent interview, North Carolina Public School Superintendent, Mark Johnson said that students will not return to school on April 1st.
I can tell you right now-people need to be preparing we are not coming back to school April 1st, Johnson said. We’re working with the governor’s team very closely. We’re working with the federal government particularly about getting the waivers needed and making sure we don’t have to test this school year.
Johnson said that parents need to start setting routines for their children because the school closing will surpass March 3oth.
North Carolina student’s last day of school is June 9, 2020, and will only have 2 months left when April 1st arrives.
We spoke with sources close to Johnson in Raleigh who tell us that students may not return to school due to the coronavirus, which is on the rise in North Carolina.
Johnson said that his office is looking at ways to do remote learning with printing instructional materials and packets and get those to students.
He said there is a lot of hard questions that they are going through at this moment.
When you look at what Johnson said in an interview, and you look at how much time is remaining in the school year, you, yourself will come to the conclusion that students will NOT return back to school for the remainder of the school year.
