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

3/6/2024

Here is where to find participation totals for schools and districts for the Teacher Working Conditions survey.

The N.C. State Board of Education meets today. Here is the agenda.

The following information is in both the article on vouchers and the article on fund balances, but I want to highlight it for districts.

Data on Opportunity Scholarships does not have to be reported by NCSEAA to the N.C. Department of Public Instruction (DPI) until Oct. 15 (search the budget bill for “Opportunity Scholarship Financial Impact Report/Reinvestment in Public Schools” to see the provision). Only DPI will be able to determine how many of the students who applied and receive the voucher were in public schools in 2023-24.

Public school districts will have to put together their master schedule and local budget requests in April and May for the 2024-25 school year without data on the impact of school choice expansion. Because parents often don’t withdraw their students from the school they are attending, districts won’t know until school starts in August how many students they are losing. For districts, that matters because public school funding is based on average daily membership (ADM).

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News. A cross section of diverse sources are checked weekly and monthly. If you have an article you think needs to be included, email [email protected].
