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


For our policy wonks, ADM month 1 is out. Here, under principal monthly report. Our team is crunching numbers.

We expect the legislature to be in session next week. Stay tuned.

The State Board of Education will meet Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 2 and 3, for its Bi-Annual Planning and Work Session. This two-day session will be held in Room 150 in the Education Building, 301 N. Wilmington St., Raleigh. The board will convene at 11 a.m. on Tuesday; at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. The Board will meet Thursday, Nov. 4, at 9 a.m. in the 7th floor board room for its regular monthly meeting. The meeting agendas are available online and include a link to audio access for the meeting.

From Superintendent Jeff McDaris, new songs for the playlist. If you have the opportunity, it’s really fun — and an interesting lens into ed policy — to sit with him and hear why he picks the songs. I learned “Traveller” is for me, and this week I saw sunrises, rainbows, and shooting stars. I’m with him on “Thankful.” Thanks especially to Superintendent McDaris and Mr. Ted Pedro in Burke for your time and public service. I learned so much!
