Yesterday, the Board of Education voted to allow the following groups to return to in-person learning 4 days per week (Plan A) beginning March 29, 2021:
- All K-5th grade students
- Certain specialized programs for Exceptional Children (EC) and English Learner (EL) students in 6th-12th grades:
- Students in Specialized Behavioral Supports (SBS), Promoting Academics through Communication and Social Skills (PACSS), and Cross-Categorical Adapted Curriculum (CCAC) programs
- Students following the Occupational Course of Study (OCS) curriculum
- Students whose primary disabilities are Visually Impaired or Deaf/Hard of Hearing
- EL Newcomers (EL students enrolled on or after August, 2019)
If your child is impacted by this change, your school will reach out to you with additional details in the coming weeks.
Per the Governor’s executive order, students in grades 6-12, who are not defined in the groups above, will remain in Plan B.
“RSS has done an excellent job operating under Plan B, and I feel we will do the same as we address any challenges with Plan A. We will continue to monitor and share health metrics with you between now and spring break,” said Dr. Tony Watlington, Rowan-Salisbury Schools Superintendent.
