It can be been nearing a year of remote learning for several college students in the Alamance-Burlington Faculties Method, and district superintendent Bruce Benson is concerned. 

He sees a lot more than 200 seniors in hazard of not finding their diploma on-time, a substantial fall from very last spring. On recent end-of-study course examinations, he witnessed scores sink throughout the district. 

“We’ve taken a substantial phase backwards in phrases of outcomes for youngsters,” Benson said “We have a duty to get our youngsters back on track,” he said. 

To execute this, Benson needs his district of 21,700 students to cut summer time break short and return kids to school rooms sooner. The precise return dates would have to have to be ironed out, he stated, but money from the federal Coronavirus Support, Reduction, and Financial Security (CARES) Act would permit the district to resume classes shortly just after the present yr finishes and fork out workers more to work a longer 2021-22 school year.
