2015-2016 Traditional Calendar Revision Approved 
The nine-member Board approved changing the last day of the second quarter/end of the semester to Friday, January 15, 2016, instead of Friday, January 22.  The calendar change will help support the administration of high school End-of-Course assessments.  Feedback from principals shows the change would not be problematic.

Employee Incentive Program Embraced
Starting this fall, Cumberland County Schools more than 6,300 employees will be able to take advantage of the school system’s new employee incentive program titled Work Perks…Businesses Caring and Sharing. Through the program, businesses are offering numerous discounts, special offers and incentives to CCS’ employees as a show of appreciation for the hard work they do for children each day. Information about Work Perks and a list of its partnering businesses can be found on the CCS’ Intranet Portal. Also, employees are encouraged to look for a Work Perks decal displayed in the window of local participating businesses.

Every Minute Counts! Student Tardiness Campaign
Last school year, 808 students were tardy to CCS’ elementary schools every day. This year, the school system is ‘teaming up’ with parents to combat student tardiness from kindergarten – 12th grade. At the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year, the CCS will launch a campaign to help tackle tardiness titled “Every Minute Counts! From start to finish, class time matters.”  The CCS will be calling on all parents to join in the effort and help raise the expectations for all students by getting them to school on time and allowing them to complete the entire school day.
