Our community faced an abrupt shift to stay-at-home orders and remote schooling this past spring, and we are continuing to experience the impacts of the pandemic and this summer’s restrictions. Now, many students who finished the school year online will find themselves logging back on to begin this fall.
Earlier this summer, Gov. Roy Cooper outlined three plans for reopening North Carolina's public and charter schools this fall: Plan A (return to classes), Plan C (fully remote) and Plan B (hybrid). On Tuesday, he announced that North Carolina’s schools will be operating under Plan B for the fall, and districts have the flexibility to choose Plan C. Both Orange County school districts will begin their semesters completely online.
We know that online schooling is a major shift for students, parents, teachers and school staff. Every one of your experiences has been uniquely impacted by the switch to remote schooling, and as schools transition to this online model of learning, we want to help you tell your stories.
We’ve created an online survey where you’ll be able to share your experiences. We want to hear how you’ve been impacted by this shift to remote education. If you’re interested, please fill out the survey.
