In North Carolina, elementary schools are able to reopen at full capacity, while middle and high schools are allowed to open in hybrid, partially remote formats. 

But Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is fully remote until Jan. 15. Orange County Schools has been remote for the first nine weeks of the semester and will vote on whether to continue with virtual education on Sept. 28. 

For the past few months, the DTH has covered education through the pandemic. We’ve written about Zoombombing issues, how the districts are handling driver’s education and how local nonprofits are working to feed families. 

But we can’t fully report on education without the voices of parents, students and educators. We want to make sure we’re telling the right stories, and that the stories we are telling include the perspectives of those who are the most affected by remote learning. 

We’ve created a short survey to check in with families and educators in local school districts. If you are a part of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools or Orange County Schools districts, please take five minutes to fill out our survey. 

You can access it below, or text “EDUCATION” to 73-224 to fill it out.
