On March 23 Govenor Roy Cooper announced that all public schools in North Carolina will remain closed for in-person instruction until May 15. The decision was made amid the rapidly evolving COVID-19 crisis.
The focus remains on remote learning and meal preparation and distribution, and the Department of Public Instruction already has teams planning for schools and legislative requests that will be required as students remain out of school. DPI is working with the governor's team, State Board of Education and the General Assembly.
