New Hanover County Teachers Alliance-Plan C Initiative
With much thought and extreme concern for our students, faculty, and staff around the county, we petition to move to Plan C- All Remote Learning for at least the first 9 weeks of the 20-21 School Year. We are one of the 10 largest counties in North Carolina, making the State Plan B- Limited Capacity incredibly difficult to implement thoroughly and safely at this time. With our state seeing record high CASE numbers and hospitalizations, the New Hanover County Teachers Alliance moves to delay face-to-face instruction in New Hanover County. This extra time will allow the entire county to better prepare our school buildings as well as implement the policies and procedures needed to truly return safely. The additional time will also allow for the increased number of vacationers and tourists to return home, which will help mitigate our county numbers and minimize the load on our local medical resources.
