EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


The N.C. State Board of Education meets today and tomorrow. Here is today’s agenda.

I’ll be in Jackson County today and then on to Cherokee County for the rest of the week.

From EdNC’s Rupen Fofaria:

The U.S. Department of Education issued two question-and-answer documents last month aimed at two groups of students with disabilities — infants and toddlers, and transition-age students or adults receiving vocational rehabilitation services.


For infants and toddlers, federal officials addressed how meetings can be held remotely, how timelines for providing services might be affected, and what should happen if services cannot be provided according to the child’s individualized family service plan. 


For the older, vocational rehab students, the Education Department clarified how services designed to prepare those with disabilities for employment can continue. The agency said that work-based learning experiences for students with disabilities should happen online when they cannot be done in-person.
