The Dare County Board of Education plans to call a special meeting later this month after county school staff receives second COVID-19 vaccines at a Feb. 13 clinic.

In an email to parents and guardians, Dare County school leadership said officials are also working on addressing summer school classes.

Parents have been asked to fill out another survey stating their preferences for in-person, hybrid or virtual learning for the remainder of the school year.

The survey also asks parents to weigh in on summer learning programs for K-12 students, all of which would be optional and free of charge.

For elementary and middle school, the summer opportunities could provide a mix of academic intervention and enrichment (physical activity, art, music, and field trips).

For high school, the option would likely be a two-week credit recovery program in June.
