Catawba County Schools called an emergency board meeting for Wednesday to again discuss school reopening.
The meeting can be viewed by visiting the Catawba County Schools website, according to a press release from the school district. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. and the board will not entertain public guests onsite due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Public comments will be accepted until Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. by email using the subject line “Public Hearing for Comments for 8-5-20 Board Meeting.” Emails should be directed to school board attorney Crystal Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Davis will share comments with the school board, according to the release.
People who miss the pre-meeting deadline can still comment until Thursday at 5:30 p.m. by emailing Davis with the subject line "Comments for the 8-5-20 Board Meeting."
The district previously decided to reopen schools at the start of the school year, Aug. 17, using a hybrid plan. Under the plan, students would attend school twice a week and participate in remote-learning three days a week. Students also have the option to select online learning only if they wish.
Newton-Conover City Schools selected a similar model while Hickory Public Schools decided to pursue online learning only for all students during the first four weeks of the 2020-21 school year.
