Board Approved Strategic Goals for 2014-2017

Members of the Board approved adopting the following strategic goals for the Cumberland County Schools (CCS) for 2014 – 2017:

  • Goal #1 – Every student in the CCS graduates from high school prepared for work and further education;
  • Goal #2 – Every Cumberland County student has a personalized education;
  • Goal #3 – Every student, every day, has excellent educators;
  • Goal #4 – Every Cumberland County school has up-to-date financial, business, and technology systems to serve its students, parents, and educators; and
  • Goal #5 – Every Cumberland County student is healthy, safe and responsible.

In April, members of the North Carolina State Board of Education established goals and targets as they implement a new strategic plan. The CCS will use several of the goals, targets, and plans to monitor progress as the school system moves forward to meet or exceed the state average in many cases.

Recognitions

Student government leader Taylor Posey from Reid Ross Classical High School served as the ex-officio member of the Cumberland County Board of Education during the meeting. Ex-officio members are given the opportunity to make comments, ask questions, and give input on any topic brought before the Board.

Betty Musselwhite, the associate superintendent of School Support, recognized several members of the staff at Gray’s Creek High School who recently played an integral role in saving the life of a colleague who was having a heart attack. 

Teachers Tyler Hackett, Jonathan Grimes, John Fisher, Barbara Dalton and Kristina Yarborough; Assistant Principals Lisa Stewart and Phyllis Jackson; and School Resource Officer Larry Sheets were recognized by the Board.

Musselwhite also introduced April’s ‘Amazing Act of Character’ honorees Faith Haggerty from J.W. Coon Elementary School, Caden Goins from Rockfish Elementary School, Robert Cartwright from Westover Middle School, KaZiya Mikel Peterkin from Ramsey Street High School, and Troynell Reese from E.E. Smith High School. They were chosen from individual school nominations for displaying ‘acts of good character.’ Personal congratulations were extended to the students from each member of the Board.
