Low Performing District Plan
Effective with the 2013-2014 school year, the State Board of Education is required to award North Carolina public schools overall grades of A-F for achievement, growth and performance and required to designate whether a school has met, exceeded, or not met expected growth. WCS has been deemed a Low-Performing District because half of our 26 schools did not meet the criteria for performance and growth. WCS is required by the state to develop an improvement plan that specifically addresses how the district will improve both the school performance grade and school growth score of each low-performing school in the district. The plan also addresses how current district policy should be changed to improve student achievement, specifically focused on improving both the school performance grade and school growth score. The Board of Education approved the plan on Oct. 17, and it will now be reviewed by parents, community members and the State Board.
Please review the Low Performing District Plan. There are also copies in school offices.
Our district is focused on continuous improvement, and we look forward to working with each of you to provide the best education for our children.
Youth Master Plan
Strong communities are built on the foundations of families, and most importantly, the foundations we provide for our youth. We realize that all children benefit from stable homes, strong schools, positive role models, and nurturing and safe environments. The Wilson Youth Master Plan demonstrates the commitment of our community leaders to ensure that all our youth will be insulated by a pipeline of positive opportunities and proper support they need to become productive citizens and future leaders of the next generation.
The Youth Master Plan represents a joint effort between Wilson 20/20 Community Vision and Wilson County Schools to bring together educators, parents, community members, nonprofits, businesses, churches, law enforcement and government agencies to improve the outcomes for all children in our community. We have engaged our youth in the planning process, and we have responded to the priorities they have helped us establish. This plan has assured us that we are partnering with a community that cares about each and every child.
Our Plan represents the work of five impact teams focused on areas where attention and action are warranted for our youth:
- Education and Workforce
- K-12 Academic Achievement
- Health and Wellness
- Out of School Time
In each of these areas, we have developed ambitious strategies that will require improved communication, extensive collaboration, and strong leadership to hold ourselves accountable for the outcomes we hope to achieve. We want all of our youth to realize the endless possibilities and the potential they will have upon graduation, and we intend for each of our youth to benefit from our investment and our commitment to help them succeed.
