2021-2022 BACK TO SCHOOL INFO:  We've begun posting helpful information in one central location involving the next school year and what it will look like.
 
Survey Results: The results of the Virtual Learning Survey that gauged the interest in a Remote Learning Plan for the upcoming school year were presented during the June Committee Meetings.  The survey was available to Elementary, Middle, and High School Parents/Guardians in May while school was still in session.
  • With only 2% of the school community showing interest in a 100% remote learning format, the decision was made to not offer it as an option for the 2021-22 school year unless there is an unforeseen circumstance that deems remote learning necessary.  All Brunswick County Schools will resume 100% Face to Face learning for the 2021-22 school year.
 
 
SUMMER MEALS PROGRAM:  The Brunswick County Schools Summer Meals Program runs June 7th through August 5th.   All children can receive free breakfast and lunch and there is no registration required. 

Just stop by one of the curbside locations and pick them up!
 
STRONG SCHOOLS NC PUBLIC HEALTH TOOLKIT K-12 updated 7/29/21: The NC Department of Health and Human Services updated the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit that includes daily operations, transportation, etc.  
Redistricting Vote: During the March 30, 2021 Special Meeting to vote on Phase 2 redistricting, Board Members voted to unanimously approve Plan A redistricting, the consultants recommendations, with the exception that students in the Mallory Creek area would NOT be moved to SBHS to help relieve projected growth in the northern region should the student population hit 1,400 at NBHS in the future.
Instead, the district will move forward with the consultant's alternative recommendations to look for ways to add capacity at NBHS by 300-400 seats to avoid overcrowding within the next 5 years.
 
New Air Purifiers: In January, the Board Members approved the purchase order of new Ionized Air Purification Systems to be installed districtwide and the project is now complete.
 
What is it? 
  • This 'needlepoint bipolar ionization technology' as it is called will be installed in existing HVAC systems at Brunswick County Schools.
What does it do?
  • Basically, it inactivates/deactivates pathogens and reduces the volume of harmful pathogens including the coronavirus and SARS-CoV-2.
Bus installation is complete on the entire fleet(approximately 150 buses).
