CCPS Education Happenings


Individuals interested in becoming a licensed school bus driver are urged to contact Carteret County Public School System Transportation Director Lloyd Willis about an upcoming training class. A three-day training class will be offered February 6, 7 and 8, 2017, in Beaufort. To qualify for the training class, individuals must be at least 18 years of age and hold a North Carolina drivers license. Medical approval will be discussed at the training class. Those interested should contact Mr. Willis at 252-728-4635 to ask questions and register for the class.


Remember, tomorrow, January 20, is an early release day with all schools dismissing three hours prior to the normal dismissal time. Also, Monday, January 23, is a teacher workday so there will be no school for students.


Carteret County School Board Seeks Community Input on Superintendent Search 

The Carteret County Schools Board of Education is seeking direct input from interested members of the community to help shape the search process and assist in defining the qualities and characteristics of the next superintendent of the Carteret County Public Schools (CCPS).

The board invites parents and community members to participate in a short community survey that can be accessed and completed online by clicking the survey link on the main CCPS webpage: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5QFHLGB.

All surveys must be completed by January 30, 2017 with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by the North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) at the board meeting on February 7, 2017.

In addition, all employees of CCPS will have an opportunity to complete a separate online staff survey. Details about completing the employee version of the search survey will be communicated via school system email.

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.
