Changes to Remote Learning

Changes to Remote Learning for the 2021-2022 School Year
Cabarrus County Schools offered students a fully remote option (Plan C) during the 2020-2021 school year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are seeing decreases both nationally and locally in the number of COVID cases – with only 16 positive cases reported throughout our school district for the week of May 10th. The increased availability and the expansion of vaccine eligibility to anyone 12 years old and older also are positive indicators that will allow us to return to normal school operations. 
Cabarrus County Schools will no longer offer students a fully remote learning option at each school. Students interested in a remote option will be required to enroll in the Cabarrus Virtual Academy, the district’s primarily remote K-12 school. This change is effective for the 2021-2022 school year.
To be considered for enrollment at the Virtual Academy, students must submit an application using our online system at by June 4th. Please note students must meet entrance criteria to be considered for admission. Students enrolled in the Virtual Academy do not have access to all programming available in our traditional schools, including athletics and some fine arts options.
