— "It's time," a coalition of state leaders said in early February. After 10 months of mostly remote learning, public school systems across North Carolina are urged to bring students back to the classroom.

What that looks like varies by the district.

Under the state's latest vaccine priority list, teachers and school staff members are part of the third group in line to get shots, which could delay when students can get back in school in many counties across the state.

Explained: Plan A, B, C

Under state guidelines, school districts have the option of choosing between Plan A, B and C.

Plan A allows students to return to the classroom for full-time, face-to-face instruction five days a week.

If a district decides to operate under Plan B, students would attend school under a hybrid learning model to limit contact and capacity in schools. Part of the time students would attend school in-person, and the other half students would complete classwork at home online. Middle and high schools are able to operate under this learning model, if the school board decides.

Plan C is available for school districts who decide that the safe option for staff, students and families is to stop with in-person learning and hold all online classes. This option is available for any school district and all grade levels.
