WCPS posts draft for reopening schools this fall


GOLDSBORO - Wayne County Public Schools posted a draft of school reopening plans for the fall on its website Thursday evening.

Familes, staff and the public can review feedback on the plans, which can be found on the district's newly-created webpage called 2020-2021 School Reopening Updates.

In addition to the plans, the district launched a registration form for a K-12 Virtual Learning Program, which is an online school choice option that will be available this fall and which will offer students a personalized and flexible learning environment.

The deadline to apply to be a part of the Virtual Learning Program is July 30.

"We would encourage families to take the time to review the draft plans that were made available and to share any comments they feel will be helpful in our planning," said Dr. James Merrill, interim superintendent of WCPS.

"As the school district works to finalize details of its reopening plans, this phase of public review is a critical part of our planning process."

At this time, no one plan has been approved by the Wayne County Board of Education.

In the developing of the draft plans, WCPS took into account health guidance, general statutes, state guidelines and mandates, parent and staff survey information, input from a stakeholder planning committee, and this week's announcement from the governor.

Parent, staff and public input specific to the draft plans will also be considered before any plans are finalized for Board approval.
