Durham County and Wake County schools will be implementing remote learning through at least Monday, March 30 because of the coronavirus.

According to an article by The News & Observer, both districts will focus on old course material during their closures. Materials are available online and in print.

“These activities will not be new learning for students and are not required but will reinforce instruction received in class,” Durham Public Schools wrote in a message on the district’s website. “In-print activities will be provided for students who cannot access materials digitally and do not have internet access. Internet access or a device is NOT required for supplemental learning.”

Wake County Superintendent Cathy Moore said their remote learning curriculum will include input from teachers, staff and administrators.

“The purpose of remote learning is to reinforce concepts previously taught, to keep children engaged and to reduce learning loss,” Moore posted in a message on the Wake County public school system’s website.
