New Hanover County Schools to Hold Virtual Town Hall Meetings on Plan B Transition

New Hanover County Schools is continuing to prepare for the district transition to Plan B at the beginning of the second grading period. Governor Cooper's announcement on Sept. 17, 2020, giving school districts the option, on or after October 5, to transition Pre-K-Grade 5 students only to Plan A is under consideration, as are other scheduling options. Options will be discussed and a recommendation will be brought to the Board at the October 6 Regular Board meeting.
NHCS will host a series of Virtual Town Hall meetings for families on the district's transition to Plan B. The panel will include Dr. Foust and Instruction, Transportation, Child Nutrition, Facilities, Student Services, Technology, Communications, and Finance staff. This event will allow families throughout the district to meet Superintendent Foust and ask questions about the district’s transition to Plan B at the beginning of the second grading period. The district will hold three separate virtual events on:
  • Tuesday, September 22 - Pre K and Elementary Schools
  • Wednesday, September 23 - LatinX Families (Partnered with UNCW Latino Alliance)
  • Thursday, September 24 - Middle and High Schools
Each Town Hall will run from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. with the option to extend 30 minutes. Families will have the option to view remotely via live streaming on Roku, Apple TV, NHCS-TV Youtube, Facebook Live and online at NHCS-TV or on Spectrum Cable Channel 5.
