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

May 4, 2020

A couple of years ago, our TOY were down in Ocracoke, and they came back with this idea of #NCLighthouseLeaders. As we head into #TeacherAppreciationWeek, from rays of sunlight to Christmas lights to flashlights, please help us lift our teachers up in light and love. May the 4th be with you, and may a lightsaber light your way today as we begin Teacher Appreciation Week. 

The State Board of Education will meet remotely Wednesday and Thursday, May 6 and 7, for its regular monthly meeting. The agendas for this meeting and executive summaries are available online.
