The State Board of Education is meeting today. Here is the agenda.

EdNC staff, in conjunction with the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, will be co-hosting Gathering for Good collaborative workshops over lunch as part of the Department of Public Instruction’s Summerpalooza Summer Nutrition Program. Summerpalooza will provide an opportunity to learn more about the summer nutrition programs in North Carolina, identify ways to reduce barriers, and pinpoint areas where summer meals are needed to reduce food insecurity, according to DPI. Today the events will be held in Greenville.
