Calling all parents of school-aged kiddos. We’re working on a back-to-school guide + would love help from you – our local experts.

We know things are going to look a little bit different this year, so we’re looking for your tips + knowledge on networking with teachers (and other parents), whether you’ll be opting for fully-remote learning (and any hacks you have), plus advice on tools and techniques that support learning, keeping kids happy while physically distancing + more. 

Here’s a little background info –

  • NC has elected Plan B (a mix of virtual + in-person learning) for the school year. Schools + parents may choose to follow Plan C (all-remote learning) but cannot choose a plan that is more lenient.
  • Asheville City Schools announced they will start the school year with Plan C (all-remote learning) for the first nine weeks. The first day of semester is Mon., Aug. 17.
  • Buncombe County has chosen Plan B. The first day of the semester is Wed., Aug. 19.
  • Henderson County will be on Plan C for the first six weeks. The first day of the semester is Mon., Aug. 17.
