New Hanover school board to vote on possible move to Plan B

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - The New Hanover County Board of Education is expected to decide whether students will return to schools for in-person instruction or continue with remote-only learning for the next grading period.

According to the board’s agenda for Tuesday’s interim meeting, officials will “determine if the district will remain in Plan C or move into Plan B to begin the second grading period.”

The board previously met on July 28 and voted for all schools to begin the year under Plan C — remote-only learning — through the end of the first grading period, after having voted two weeks prior to go with Plan B.

Plan B is a combination of in-person and remote instruction with enhanced cleaning and safety measures at each school.
