Board waits on sending K-5 students back full time


The Wayne County Board of Education, after a spirited debate, voted 4-3 in favor of waiting until the end of the first semester - if - the Wayne County Public Schools district decides to fully reopen schools for K-5 students under Plan “A.”

Gov. Roy Cooper announced last week that school districts may reopen to K-5 students on Oct. 5.

WCPS considered the move until the Board held a special called meeting Wednesday afternoon. Though the district has prevented any coronavirus outbreaks, Board members said plenty of work remains.

And time is needed to resolve issues.
