OUR MISSION

Vance County Schools' mission is that every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and post-secondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century.

The Standard for our School System is Excellence! The late Ron Edmonds stated, "We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven't so far."

Therefore; "let us teach each child the way in which we want our own child taught." If we do this, success will be achieved. Each child will be successful, and we will have an Excellent School System because of you.

We are “Committed to Excellence”, and we work hard to make the site a primary source for timely information for all users, and a main gateway for improved communication between parents, teachers, students and other members of our community.

»    Free Breakfast and Lunch for Students
     
Beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, all students in Vance
      County Schools will be able to eat breakfast and lunch for free
      each school day.

      Students will still need to key in a (new) Meal ID number as they
      enter the cafeteria meal line.

      Snacks will be available for purchase.  Money can still be placed on
      meal accounts.

       The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program provides the free
      meals and is a new reimbursement option for public school systems,
      available for the first time in all states across the country beginning
      with the 2014-2015 school year.  It is available as a result of the
      federal Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.  Parents and
      guardians of students will no longer need to complete the
      free/reduced price meal application.
