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


This week, Gov. Roy Cooper kicks off the 4th Annual Governor’s School Supply Drive. The drive is fully online this year, featuring a new partnership with the North Carolina Parent Teacher Association. On average, teachers spend about $500 of their own money on supplies for their classrooms each year. Cooper’s School Supply Drive will run from Nov. 16 to Dec. 16. Donations made through the portal can be directed to a specific school district or charter school or to a general fund that will be divided among counties with the greatest need. Here is the donation portal.
