Interim Superintendent Leslie "Les" Tubb
Dear Students, Teachers and Staff, Parents and Community Members,
On behalf of the Brunswick County Board of Education, I welcome and encourage you to review the Brunswick County Schools 2013 – 2014 School Report Card. Each year our schools and our district provide updates of academic achievement through the North Carolina School Report Card, which is available online at our website and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction's website.
The NC School Report Card is an important part of the State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction’s efforts to raise learning standards for all students. Knowledge gained from the report card, showing strengths and weaknesses, can and will be used to improve instruction and services to our students.
I encourage all parents and our community to take time to view the release of the NC Report Card. The report card is based on performance results and data from the 2013 – 2014 school year. Not only will you find data about each of our 19 schools and district but you will also be able to compare Brunswick County’s data with North Carolina’s other 114 districts and the state as a whole. Additionally, this report includes our status in meeting the targets of the federally required Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs).
In viewing the district and school report cards you will find information regarding student performance, performance on end-of-grade and end-of-course testing, graduation rates, school discipline, school safety funds spent per student, student demographics, teacher qualifications, school and class size and principal qualifications.
The Brunswick County Board of Education has a strategic plan to improve academic achievement. In order to progress and reach these goals every student, parent, staff member and stakeholder must be involved in our schools. We are, and must continue to be, committed to providing the highest quality education for every student. We are a “Community of Learners”. Ultimately, the goal for every student is to graduate prepared to compete in a global society and to lead productive lives.
