Remote Learning Until January

COMMUNITY

From Staff Reports

It’s going to be even longer before local schoolkids get to enter their classrooms.

Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education has voted unanimously to keep all learning online at least until Jan. 15, 2021.

The school board had hoped at first to use a hybrid virtual and in-person method to teach the district’s more than 12,000 students. But in response to concerns from parents and staff, the board earlier this month shifted its support to an entirely online system of instruction for the first nine weeks of the fall semester.

But with the number of viral infections growing throughout North Carolina, the board changed course again and voted to follow Interim Superintendent Jim Causby’s recommendation to extend virtual classes through the end of the semester.
