  Gov. Cooper has signed a bill requiring school boards to adopt a policy regarding face coverings and to revisit that policy each month to determine if it needs to be modified. The Burke County Board of Education will do this at its regular meetings. The next regular meeting is scheduled for Sept. 20. The board will review current and relevant information on COVID-19's impact on the school district and the community at that time. Also, the board has given the superintendent the authority to make day-to-day decisions on shifting individual schools or classrooms to remote learning due to cases and quarantines. As of now, BCPS has had to do that with 2 elementary classrooms, but no schools. There are no plans to shut down all schools. graphic
