School System Announcements



We want to provide an update after meeting with our district-level leadership and principals today regarding semester completion and grading.  These are based on current guidance provided by the NC State Board of Education.    

There are guidelines for 9th through 11th-grade students and Seniors.  


9th-11th grade students:

  • Virtual instruction began Monday, March 30th for students and will continue through May 15th or when we return to school.

  • Teachers will be providing instruction, on-going communication, and meaningful feedback to students.

  • Students should work towards achieving mastery of concepts.

  • Grades will be assigned accordingly and will be posted weekly in the PowerSchool portal.


12th-grade students:

  • Seniors who were passing courses as of March 13, will receive a “pass” in PowerSchool.  We still encourage all seniors to continue working on classes and learning opportunities from teachers.  

  • Seniors not passing courses as of March 13, will have the opportunity to continue to work toward a passing grade through remote learning. 

  • Seniors will be required to meet 22 credits for graduation 

As we move forward, our priority is to provide equitable access for all students and to support our families through this new learning environment.  Students and parents should be expecting each class to be between 30-45 minutes including activities. Please reach out to your school if you have concerns.


We will inspire, educate, and empower students for life through relationships, knowledge, and opportunity.

PowerSchool Mobile App

Ever wonder what your child is doing in school?  How did he do on that test at school today?  Was she counted present today?

Well you can access this information and much more with the PowerSchool Mobile App.  You can signup for all of your children under one account.  You can also receive real-time push updates anytime a grade or attendance is updated.  Check out the PowerSchool Mobile site for more information.  This is available for Apple and Android devices.

You can also access the same information through your computer, by accessing https://carteret.powerschool.com/public/

If you have never setup a parent account, there are just a few security steps to verify parental status and get you access:

1.  Complete the Parental Request Form for Access and send in with your child or deliver to your school office. (One is needed for each child, if at different schools.) 

2.  Stop by the school and show your state-issued picture ID.  (You must be a parent or legal guardian to receive access.)

3.  Your school will issue you a sheet similar to the one linked HERE.

4.  Go to a computer with internet access and complete the Parent Portal Instructions.
