SCOTLAND COUNTY, NC (WBTW) – Scotland County Schools voted 4-3 to return to school under a hybrid learning model, “Plan B,” for the second nine weeks of school.
The vote came during Monday night’s Board of Education Meeting, where they decided to follow a staggered schedule with half of the students in the classrooms on Monday and Tuesday and the other half of the students would come for in-person instruction on Thursdays and Fridays.
Wednesday would be a remote learning day for all students and allow for a deep cleaning of all buildings.
Parents will have the option to opt into remaining fully virtual, and not having their children attend in-person classes.
