On Tuesday, July 14th, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced the adoption of plans for both in-person and remote learning to occur as public schools begin the 2020-21 school year.

Still, many families are seeking further clarity on how the plans to operate schools will impact health, safety, child care, and work schedules as we move closer to fall.
An expert panel of administrators and educators from Watauga County Schools are joined by community leaders to answer questions on school cleaning protocols and expectations, coordinating child care, broadband capabilities, and return to work schedules.
