Interim Superintendent Dr. Merrill releases statement on Gov. Cooper's decision


GOLDSBORO - Today Governor Cooper announced that public school districts will have the option to move to “Plan A” for grades K-5 as early as October 5.

The Wayne County Public Schools district administration is analyzing the local implications of such a move. Areas we are looking at include:

  •   Potential cleaning & supplies inventories needed for schools to operate in “Plan A”;

  •   Uncertainty of how many K-5 students will request to be moved to full virtual and the timeline needed for parents to request such moves;

  •   Potential impacts to teacher and student schedules;

  •   Implications of spilt (5th grade) grade configurations between elementary and middle schools;

  •   Potential challenges and timeline needed to schedule bus routes in Plan A;

  •   and determining “Plan A” logistics and the timeline needed for potential implementation

    The welfare of our students and staff remains paramount for district leadership.

    We will be working to address questions about these areas as quickly as possible.
