Press release from Asheville City Schools:
As shared with staff and families, the district has decided to move from Plan B to Plan C. Please see below for further communication: After further consideration and hearing more from staff and families, Asheville City Schools has decided to move from Plan B to Plan C, at least through the first nine weeks. This means our schools will start on August 17th, with at-home remote instruction for all students Kindergarten – 12th Grade.
According to Buncombe County Health and Human Services, our county’s COVID-19 numbers continue to accelerate. Therefore, we believe it’s imperative to have a slower reopening that allows us to carefully plan and maintain safety protocols for all campuses.
Additional information, including a more detailed schedule for Plan C and Virtual Academy registration, will be released early next week. Again, all students Kindergarten – 12th Grade will begin with remote instruction on August 17th.
