At EdNC, we strive to be as innovative as we want our schools and our state to be. Today, we hope we are the first news organization in North Carolina to report in virtual reality. This is new for all of us so you get to learn along with us. We are starting with 360 cameras and hope to move truly into immersive reporting (think of a video game-like experience of consuming content) over the next 12-18 months.

The application to be considered for the 2017 Enloe High School Charity Ball beneficiary is open! Here is a link to the application. Applications are due May 12.

The Public School Forum is now accepting applications for the 2017-18 cohort of the North Carolina Education Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP).


The second conference of the Women in Educational Leadership Symposium (WIELS) will be held at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina on September 22 through September 24, 2017. Conference proposals are due by May 31, 2017.
