The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education voted in an meeting Oct. 1, 2020, to increase the in-person instructional time for K-5 students when they return to classrooms on Nov. 2, 2020.
The Board approved modifications to the CMS Transition Plan for In-person and Remote Instruction (Plan B) so that K-5 students will be divided into two groups, instead of the previously approved three groups. Students that were previously classified as Group C will be divided between Group A and Group B.
The first group of K-5 students (Group A) will come to school on Monday and Tuesday of each week. The second group of K-5 students (Group B) will come on Thursday and Friday of each week. Wednesdays are designated as remote-instruction days for all K-5 students. The initial transition plan called for dividing K-5 students into three groups, with each group attending school in person for one week, then having remote instruction for two weeks.
The modified transition plan follows state guidelines for social distancing in schools. All students will be required to wear masks at school, as will school staff.
