July 14, 2020 – HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS
Governor Roy Cooper announced today that public schools in North Carolina will reopen this fall with a mixture of in-person and remote learning for students.
Generally, Plan B will be in effect across the state. Plan B calls for some students to be in class each day and other students to learn from home. Details, such as the percentage of students allowed in school at one time and how often students rotate from in-person to remote learning, will vary from school district to school district.
Plan C, which calls for all remote learning with no students in the classroom, is an available option for school systems which think that would work best for them.
Following the Governor's afternoon press conference, NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker issued a statement that the state association now has more information and can move forward with decisions regarding high school athletics across the state: “The NCHSAA staff will work with the Board of Directors, Sports Medicine Advisory Committee and other stakeholder groups to solidify the details of the best plan for the safety of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators and the communities the Association represents."
Last week, Tucker said that if Plan B was used by the state then she expects high school sports to be played although there are likely to be modifications made for athletes and spectators and there may be delays in starting as well postponements during the fall season to deal with.
Among the next steps will be for school districts to determine the details of how each should open and what activities will be allowed. Then administrators and athletic directors will have to co-ordinate with potential opponents (e.g. conference members in different school districts) and determine if each systems plans are compatible.
