GREENSBORO, N.C. — Many Piedmont Triad school districts are working to make a final decision about their reopening plans for the new academic year.
However, many school districts still need to vote on their reopening school plans. At least one school system has already announced its reopening plan.
Here’s a list of where school systems are in the process:
- Alamance-Burlington Schools announced they'll reopen under an A-B day schedule on July 14. However, on Tuesday, July 21, the school district's superintendent announced he will recommend a new plan featuring online classes. The official school board vote will take place Thursday at 10 a.m.
