Calendar Changes for 2020-2021

On Tuesday, May 19, the Onslow County Board of Education unanimously approved a revised calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The calendar revisions were made in response to Senate Bill 704 which was signed into law by Governor Cooper on Monday, May 4.  

Included in the bill, were provisions affecting school calendars for the upcoming academic year. The changes require that school districts develop and submit a Remote Instruction Plan, adopt a calendar which provides for the creation of five remote instruction days, include an additional five instructional days, and have an opening date for students of August 17.   

The Board also approved a staff recommendation to move the district’s two year-round schools, Clyde Erwin Elementary and Northwoods Elementary, to a traditional calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.  

Onslow Early College High School is included in the new requirements for five remote instruction days and an additional five separate and distinct instructional days. The early college calendar approved at the meeting included the additional instructional days and shifted the start for students to Monday, August 3.
