New Hanover County Schools




Header Plan C Ready Set Return

Based upon concerns for the health and safety of students and staff, New Hanover County Schools will open and operate under Plan C for the start of the 2020-2021 school year for the first grading period.
No students in school facilities. Remote learning for all students.  
PLAN C:  All students, including special education students, will receive all of their services, including related services, through a remote learning model.  For students with IEPs, all services outlined in their IEP will be provided as written or provided as written in the Remote Contingency Learning Plan developed as part of an IEP Addendum meeting. 
Special Education students may receive their supports through a variety of modalities, including live instruction (synchronous), taped lessons or other asynchronous activities, packets of materials, etc.  Parents, guardians, or other caregivers will be provided training in assisting their student with their learning, as appropriate.  Instructional assistants and other support staff will be utilized to provide support, accommodations, and modifications, and opportunities for synchronous activities based on material that has already been presented by the classroom teacher.

Virtual Academy:  K-8 students who choose virtual academy commit to 9 weeks of learning under this model.  High School students must commit to one semester.  For special needs students, services and supports will be provided either consistent with their IEP or their IEP Addendum.  All services will be remote, including related services and other supports.
