Welp! It seems like North Carolina Schools will remain close for the rest of this school year, but students may be getting ready to go back in early August.
House K-12 Education Committee Co-Chairman Rep. Craig Horn of Union County said that extending this school year to starting next school year is a possibility, but it’s still too early to make that decision.
The probability is that we’re going to be winding down the school year early. I’m not at all yet convinced that extending the school year an extra two weeks into June will provide the students with the outcomes necessary.
North Carolina requires more than 1,000 hours and 180 days of instructions and lawmakers may now need to change state law as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Rep. Horn said he’s inclined to have students return to school early in August.
That meets them where they are and it moves them quickly forward and hopefully, we get caught up by the end of next school year. These are decisions that are underway. They’re on the table. We’re talking about them, he said.
Are yall with this or no?
