Raleigh, N.C. – Legislation providing weeks of additional in-classroom learning recovery for North Carolina students this summer will be detailed by state House leaders in a press conference this Tuesday at 11:00 am in the General Assembly.
Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) has said for months that extending in-person education opportunities this summer to struggling North Carolina students, who suffer disproportionately from closed classrooms, is a priority of the state House of Representatives.
Speaker Moore will advance legislation with House leaders this week to provide a framework for extended in-classroom education for North Carolina families who choose to participate this summer.
WHO: Speaker Tim Moore, House Education and Budget Leaders
WHAT: Summer Learning Choice for NC Families
WHEN: Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 11:00 AM
WHERE: N.C. General Assembly Press Conference Room
The General Assembly sent over $1.5 billion to local school systems to support reopenings this month, in addition to state funding in 2020 that provided teacher salary step raises, fully-funded per-pupil allotments, and committed to “hold harmless” education budgets regardless of enrollment reductions.
Seating in the press conference room is limited by social distancing rules, and priority will be given to credentialed members of the press.
