Special session of the General Assembly convenes today

Today, the General Assembly convenes at 10 a.m. for a third special session to address the impacts of Hurricane Florence, including waiving make-up requirements for missed school days and addressing compensation for teachers and school staff who were forced into time off due to the storm. Alex will be there.

Tonight, Analisa and Yasmin will attend “Color of Education: An Evening with Nikole Hannah-Jones,” the first in a series of annual summits and convenings focused on race, equity and education in North Carolina. The event is hosted by The Public School Forum of North Carolina, Duke Policy Bridge and the Samuel DuBois Cook Center on Social Equity at Duke University.

We launched our community college coverage earlier this year. At the end of August, we toured all 58 community colleges and launched our Awake58 newsletter and social media accounts. We want to know how we’re doing so far. Weigh in here.

On Thursday, join NC State’s Faithful Families on their Disaster Recovery Webinar from 1:30-2:30 pm EST about how faith communities are responding to Florence. You can register here.
