Image of three people talking and the words public forum.The Cumberland County Board of Education will be holding a public forum on Wednesday, December 13 at 5:45 p.m. at Douglas Byrd Middle School to discuss the Ireland Drive/Byrd Middle School Plan. This proposal would convert Ireland Drive Middle (currently 6th grade only) to grades 6 through 8, and also convert Douglas Byrd Middle (currently grades 7 and 8) to grades 6 through 8. Each school would have their own attendance area. This plan will only affect those who live in the current Ireland Drive/Douglas Byrd District.  In the event the proposal is not approved, Ireland Drive would remain a 6th-grade school, and would continue to be paired with Douglas Byrd Middle for 7th and 8th grades.

Students check and recheck their work as they refurbish computers during the 5th Annual Computer Refurbishment Day.Cumberland County Schools’ 5th Annual Computer Refurbishment Day is being hailed a huge success!  Executive Director of Technology Kevin Coleman said the 156 students from the Academies of Information Technology at Gray’s Creek and Pine Forest high schools refurbished nearly 500 computers on Dec. 2 for CCS’ families who may be unable to afford one. The students worked alongside Technology staffers by taking 1,000 discarded computers and using half of them as parts to refurbish the other half. “This effort truly demonstrates the dedication of CCS’ staff and students to help those less fortunate in our community,” said CCS’ Interim Superintendent Tim Kinlaw.

This program will be funded through a Title IV Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant. 

Students who have been approved for alternative reassignment due to certain drug-related offenses may be approved to attend this six-week structured curriculum opportunity based upon a signed agreement between the administrator, parent, and student. The goal is to create an awareness among students regarding the far-reaching effects of alcohol and drug abuse and how this may impact future career progressions.
