School Year & Re-Entry Plans Update

School Year & Re-Entry Plans Update 07/20/2020

CCS leaders continue to refine the district’s reopening plans for the 2020-2021 school year. We understand that no plan will be perfect for everyone, but we are doing our best to create options that meet current health requirements while balancing the needs of students, staff and families. 


Remote Learning Option

The district is pleased to announce that full-time remote learning will be available for any students who want to utilize that option. Students who select this option will not be required to enroll in the Cabarrus Virtual Academy and may stay at their current school. To register for this option, complete the form on the student’s school website.


The Cabarrus County Board of Education will meet on July 23rd to decide between the combination of in-person and remote learning announced last week and a full remote learning option. For those interested in applying to the Virtual Academy, applications will be accepted through July 31st.


Academic Year Calendars

The Cabarrus County Board of Education approved the 2020-2021 academic calendars at its meeting on July 13, 2020. Most CCS students will begin the new school year on Aug. 17, 2020. Students enrolled in CCS early colleges will begin on Aug. 10, 2020.


The calendars reflect a combination of in-person and remote learning, remote learning exclusively, and in-person learning exclusively, if conditions allow us to return to school in that way. 


You may view the updated calendars here: As a reminder, the district previously announced Wolf Meadow Elementary School will follow the traditional CCS academic calendar for the 2020-2021 year.
