“I am very excited and proud to announce that ALL DCS met growth last year and 10 EXCEEDED GROWTH! Our students and staff have worked extremely hard. To our leadership team and BOE, we stayed the course and found a way to put children in school buildings for in-person learning as much as possible, and the benefits of that decision are showing. I am extremely proud of this accomplishment, as we have all worked harder than ever, adjusting to a new way of learning and working. Thank you to our Board of Education for your leadership and guidance. This is an amazing accomplishment and one that should be celebrated! “

State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children's education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools to issue Report Cards.

We encourage you to visit the NC School Report Cards' website at to see our district's Report Card. A paper version of the Report Card, the Snapshot, will be sent home. Our school district's report is also available on the Report Card website. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools that were open during this time.
