Different plans for reopening are being decided in various counties.
In Wake County, students will have one week of in-person learning, followed by two weeks of remote learning.
The school board in Guilford County will vote later this month to adopt one of three scenarios. One scenario would be all remote learning the first five weeks of school, followed by in-person learning for younger students and remote for high schoolers.
In Union County, students will attend school once a week, and their classes will be remote for the rest of the week.
Rowan-Salisbury Schools will have remote learning three days out of the week and two days a week of in-person classes. One day will also be reserved for cleaning across the district's school buildings.
The debate over how to handle fall sports is also being discussed in districts across the state.
On Wednesday, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced the start of the NCHSAA fall sports season will be delayed until September 1.
Following the announcement, Cumberland County Schools announced they will delay summer athletic workouts and other extra-curricular activities, such as band camps, indefinitely.
"Our top priority is the health and safety of our student-athletes and staff," Vernon Aldridge, the director of CCS Student Activities said in a statement. "As we receive more concrete guidance from NCHSAA regarding the resumption of fall sports, we will update families.”
