More than 60% of North Carolina’s student population attends school in a district that started the fall quarter with remote-only instruction. But some county school districts, including Buncombe, Onslow, Gaston, Union and Harnett decided to start the new school year under Plan B, which provides partial in-person instruction.

Though in-person school varies according to district, each includes some remote education, as well as the Plan C option for families that would prefer to remain entirely online. Carolina Public Press lead investigative reporter Kate Martin spoke to teachers and administrators at a few of the Plan B district schools. She joins host Anita Rao to discuss safety plans, reports of positive COVID-19 cases and contingencies.
