Student Services Team Member Talks With Student Who Wants To Come Back To SchoolOrganizers of Cumberland County Schools’ Get-Back-In-School Launch Party are calling it a huge success after nearly 50 young people decided to re-enroll in high school! They said they worked hard to make the event ‘a true experience’ for each student.

In its sixth year, the Launch Party encourages students who have dropped out of school to ‘drop back in [school].’ Each attendee was greeted at the door and received a personal ambassador who helped them navigate their way through the process. They were taken to a room of school counselors who talked with the student, reviewed their transcript and assessed the number of credits needed to graduate. From there, they were led to the auditorium where nearly 20 representatives from the school district and various community agencies made them aware of available resources to help eliminate obstacles that could hinder them getting their diploma.

Fayetteville, NC – To help parents prepare for the upcoming school year, the Cumberland County Schools will release its highly anticipated 2019-2020 Online Back-To-School Guide on July 1.
           School supply lists, open house schedules, school lunch prices, bell schedules and calendars are just some of the information featured in the online guide.
           “Getting a child prepared for the return to school can be overwhelming for many families,” said Chief Executive Community Engagement Communications Officer Lindsay Whitley. “Our district realized that long ago. What we’ve done is created ‘a one-stop shop’ for parents who are looking for information that will help their child start the new year off excited about learning.”
         The 2019-2020 Online Back-To-School Guide can be accessed from the front page of the CCS’ Website (ccs.k12.nc.us) or at http://btsg.ccs.k12.nc.us/.
