Re-Entry Options Available if Governor Cooper Selects Plan B


Enrollment Period: July 13th – July 19th, 2020

Option 1:The Blended In-Person Learning Experience is an approach to education that combines face-to-face instruction with at-home online learning on a rotational basis. To ensure that students get maximum learning outcomes in the blended in-person experience, they will be assigned to groups and given a schedule that will outline when the face-to-face instruction with their teacher will take place. While in session, the teacher will give students rigorous in-classroom instruction and provide them with engaging online assignments for their remote-learning portion of the experience.

Option 2: Through the Remote Learning Full-Time Experience for the 2020-2021 school year, parents will have the option to ‘opt into’ remote learning full-time at their child’s currently assigned school. Students and teachers will completely interact online from their home setting, engaging and participating in a fully functioning online classroom experience. The teachers will be trained specifically to provide a high-quality learning experience that is personalized and may highlight small groups, teacher support and social and emotional learning in order to ensure the student’s well-being. When the pandemic subsides and schools resume full time, these school-based remote learning classrooms will dissolve and student learning will transition into a face-to-face format.

Option 3: Cumberland Academy will serve as a separate fully virtual school within the Cumberland County School district for the 2020-2021 school year. The fully functioning school is designed to provide kindergarten through 12th- grade students and their families with an alternative learning option using online, interactive course content. Students will take the same curricular courses as the district’s traditional schools. Participation in scheduled teacher-led courses will be given to guide students and provide individualized instruction that happens online, with or without real-time interaction. The learning environment will be flexible which will allow students to be self-paced with the support of online teachers. Because the Academy is an accredited school, students will have the opportunity to graduate and receive a diploma.
