EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


This is the month we celebrate our principals. Eric Davis, chair of the N.C. State Board of Education, says:

“Know that we appreciate, admire and cherish every one of our principals. Each day, you provide the essential leadership in creating positive, uplifting, and safe environments for your students and the staffs that you lead.

“While the last year and a half have been some of the most challenging of your careers, you never wavered in your commitment and care for every student and staff member on your team. We are grateful and thankful for you, not just in October, but each and every day. You’ve earned the trust, confidence, and enduring respect of all of us.

“And while you’re leading others, be sure you take some time for yourself, to take care of yourself as you continue to pilot the schools that you lead. Thank you for your selfless leadership.”

Here is the link to the playlist curated by Superintendent Jeff McDaris to get us to and through the weekend.
