The Carteret County Board of Education will hold a special meeting on September 24, 2020 at 2 pm. Residents can watch this special meeting at the Carteret County Schools Youtube Channel.
The stated purpose of this meeting is to address information relating to local elementary schools and NC Governor Roy Cooper’s amended executive order allowing districts to choose whether K-5 schools can open full-time with in-classroom learning provided that masking, social distancing, hand washing, and facility cleaning remains in place.
It is not immediately clear if this meeting will inform the public about whether the district is choosing to open elementary schools fully, or if this meeting will just relay information about the process the district is considering as it moves towards October 5 when the governor said these new changes can happen.
We will document the highlights of the board of education’s special meeting below.
The board and Superintendent Rob Jackson recommended that elementary schools transition to Plan A starting October 19, 2020 for K-5.
