The North Carolina School Superintendents Association’s new North Carolina Guide to Strengthening Our Public Schools was released to the public last week. This guide provides insight into what schools, districts, communities, and our legislature must consider as we prepare future-ready students.
The North Carolina School Superintendents’ Association (NCSSA) is the membership organization that provides leadership and support for school superintendents in the state. The NCSSA is a core affiliate of the North Carolina Association of School Administrators (NCASA), an umbrella organization uniting 11 facets of school administration with the shared mission of ensuring student success through visionary leadership.
Dr. June Atkinson, North Carolina state superintendent, stated, “Local school superintendents in North Carolina made history this week when they stood united to unveil their vision and leadership document on how North Carolina can strengthen its public schools. I applaud this leadership and support the identified focus areas, especially related to prepared graduates, digital learning, human capital and funding our public schools at a higher level. While every school district has its own unique challenges and strengths, all public schools stand to benefit when educators stand together on behalf of the 1.5 million public school students in our state.”
