Fayetteville, NC – Cumberland County Schools (CCS) serves the third largest concentration of military-connected students in the world. As such, the district has dedicated personnel who support the needs of military-connected students and their families on a regular basis. District staff will remain in close communication and collaboration with Fort Bragg staff and military liaisons to provide additional support to families who are affected by the rapid deployment of soldiers from various units of Fort Bragg.

 
“We are united behind our Fort Bragg soldiers and families,” said CCS Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “Our entire school system is ready to assist our students, staff, and families during this challenging time.”
 

Based on the complexity of this rapid deployment and the number of service members deployed, the school system is developing a comprehensive support plan to include:

  • Coordinating with Fort Bragg staff and consolidating efforts to support impacted families;
  • Expanding the Military Student Transition Consultants (MSTCs) school coverage so they are available to assist more military-connected students;
  • Connecting military-connected families of deployed soldiers with resources available to them; and
  • Developing training and resources for school personnel to help them provide additional support to families impacted by this deployment.
Families who need additional support may contact their school counselor or MSTC for guidance. Families may also contact Joseph Peek, Military Family & Youth Liaison, at josephpeek@ccs.k12.nc.us / 910-678-7008 or Stefanie Shook, DoDEA Grants Project Director, at stefanieshook@ccs.k12.nc.us / 910-678-2454 for additional resources.
