IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - Iredell-Statesville schools say they will hold a 'virtual student day' on May 1, the day many teachers are planning to head to Raleigh to rally for better pay and working conditions.
On Thursday, April 18, the district announced that at an emergency meeting, the Iredell-Statesville Board of Education voted four to three against keeping May 1 as a regular school day. They then decided to make it a 'virtual school day.'
This means students will have three days to complete assigned work at home to be counted present for the day, and it will be an optional work day for teachers.
Parents will receive more information on the school day soon.
