In the days following Governor Cooper's announcement about re-opening schools in North Carolina, we have received many questions about how schools will ensure the health and safety of students and teachers. We hope that seeing the health and safety requirements directly from DHHS might help inform our community of all the health and safety procedures schools will be taking across our state, and here in Transylvania County Schools.

Watch Part 1 | Watch Part 2
 

On Monday, April 6, 2020, the Transylvania County Board of Education held a regular meeting which was streamed online. The intent was to (1) provide public access to the proceedings in accordance with the NC Open Meetings Law, and (2) adhere to the governor's executive order which limits a gathering to 10 people.

However, during the meeting the Board discovered that some viewers were not able to observe the meeting. For that we wish to apologize, and once the error was identified, the Board immediately went into recess to remedy the situation.

As a safeguard, the meeting was recorded, and the recording of all decisions taken by the Board is made available here for all viewers. Furthermore, we will rectify this problem before any future meetings, so every member of the public may participate safely in these open and public meetings.
