On Friday, September 18, 2020, NC Governor Roy Cooper announced that he is amending his COVID-19 Coronavirus related executive orders for NC public K-12 schools and allowing kindergarten through 5th grade elementary school students and staff to attend school under Plan A which is 100% in-person instruction 5 days a week.
Prior to that decision, NC schools could operate under Plan B which is a hybrid of in-person schooling 2 days a week and online learning 3 days a week, and Plan C which is 100% virtual.
As a function of government, the governor can take immediate legislative action on issues that have immediate, emergency, or pressing ramifications for the public.
Earlier on the same day, Lt. Governor Dan Forest who is running against Roy Cooper in 2020, said that he is moving forward with his plan to draft legislation to open all public schools fully; a promise which is also a part of his gubernatorial campaign.
Governor Cooper’s amended action can be adopted by individual districts, or remain under the current plan, and K-5 parents and guardians can choose to either remain under 100% virtual (Plan C), the hybrid (Plan B), or go with Plan A if the districts agrees with the governor.
