Governor, Leaders Urge School Systems To Consider Wider Reopening

Gov. Roy Cooper says it is now time to get North Carolina students back into the classroom.

Cooper says research done right here in North Carolina shows that in-person learning does little to spread the coronavirus provided certain safety and social distancing measures are followed.

So, Gov. Cooper and other North Carolina education leaders are calling for a wider reopening of the state’s schools.

Gov. Cooper says in-person instruction is important, not just for academics, but also for social interactions and the well-being of children.

N.C. Superintendent of Public Instruction Catherine Truitt says the health risks for in-person attendance are much lower than originally feared.

School districts throughout the state have been able to reopen schools for “Plan A” in-person learning to K-5 students.

However, some districts have remained in the hybrid in-person and remote learning “Plan B” option for K-5 due to local COVID-19 trends.
