CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is soon expected to vote on giving students more in-person learning days, according to sources.

This comes after the North Carolina State Board of Education adopted guidance from state health leaders urging schools to open for in-person learning “to the fullest extent possible” while following health and safety protocols.

Sources say CMS is considering a plan to have all elementary school students back for in-person learning for four days a week starting as soon as March 15.

Middle school and high school students would be placed into two groups and have in-person learning two days a week. 

WBTV has learned it appears CMS is doing a good job keeping students and staff safe as there are no large number of teachers calling out.

Teachers getting vaccinated makes a difference when making this decision, according to sources.

Sources say there will be an action item about this on Tuesday night’s agenda for the CMS Board of Education meeting.
