HB 90 – In-Person Learning

Primary House Sponsors: Rep. Pat McElraft (R-Carteret, Jones)


This bill gives local school administrative units the option to provide in-person instruction to students K-12 for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

The bill also requires local boards of education to provide in-person instruction to all students under Plan A (Minimal Social Distancing) and must adhere to the requirements for implementation of Plan A provided in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit.

The bill also gives local boards of education the authority to make day-to-day decisions regarding when remote instruction is necessary due to COVID-19 exposures that result in insufficient school personnel or required student quarantines provided decisions are made following consultation with the local health director and local school superintendent.
