During a meeting Tuesday, the BOE voted to allow grades PK-5 to return to school four days per week beginning Oct. 26
UNION COUNTY, N.C. — The Union County Board of Education voted 8 – 1 in favor of adding more in-person learning days for elementary students during a meeting Tuesday. The new plans come after North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced elementary schools could return to full time in-person learning beginning October 5.
The board approved four days of in-person learning for students in grades Pre-K through 5 starting October 26. Under the plan, students would go to school Monday through Thursday and do remote learning every Friday.
The school district already had plans in place for students in grades Pre-K through 12 to transition from one to two days per week in the classroom beginning next Tuesday. Those plans will remain in place through October 26.
