The N.C. State Board of Education meets today. Here is the agenda.
I’m out in Cherokee County today. Follow along on Twitter @Mebane_Rash to learn more about this county I love way, way out west.
From our colleagues at EPIC:
Calling all NC PK-12 education professionals! The Education Policy Initiative at Carolina (EPIC), in partnership with the State Board of Education (SBE) and the Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI), is conducting a statewide survey to examine experiences with remote learning during the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years. The research study aims to identify successful remote learning approaches, key barriers to student engagement and the delivery of remote learning, and other areas of concern where more support is needed. Survey questions also aim to understand how to best meet a child’s academic and social-emotional needs through remote learning and student support. If you were employed by a school or district in North Carolina during the 2019-2020 or 2020-21 school years and you participated in remote learning or student support, check your email for “NC Remote Learning Survey” for a link to share your feedback!
