Fayetteville, NC – The back-to-school season in Cumberland County Schools (CCS) is in full swing. Teachers at the district’s year-round schools returned to their classrooms this week to prepare for the arrival of students on Monday, July 22.

Earlier today, CCS’ Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly announced one way that the school system will support classroom teachers as they prepare for the new school year. This year, every teacher will receive $300 from the school system to purchase supplies and materials. This is in addition to any funds that teachers typically receive for classroom resources.

Providing support to teachers and staff is one of four major priorities in CCS’ Strategic Plan 2024. Strategic Priority 2, Premier Professionals: Recruit, support, and retain impactful teachers, leaders, and support staff, focuses on investing in teachers and staff to help strengthen classroom instruction and increase student success.

“I know how hard our teachers and staff work to prepare for our students each year,” said Connelly. “Many teachers spend personal funds to make sure their classrooms are just right for the first day of school. This is a small way for us to express our appreciation for all that our teachers do to provide robust learning experiences for every student.”
