All of us at EdNC send our thoughts and prayers, our love and support to the family and colleagues of Mark Story. Story has been the CEO of K-64 in Catawba County, an initiative “empowering learners and building a stronger workforce, fostering economic growth.” The EdNC team has been fortunate to work with Story, learning from his leadership, as we have covered K-64 as a bright spot in North Carolina. He will be missed.

Here is the agenda for the meeting of the N.C. State Board of Education.
