The Vance County Board of Education at its January 8 meeting directed Superintendent Anthony Jackson and school system staff members to seek community input on a potential facilities consolidation plan that would impact current Vance County middle and high schools. Jackson provided information at the board meeting outlining a process to gather input on the feasibility of consolidating middle and high schools. The proposal includes the possibility of consolidating Henderson and Eaton-Johnson Middle Schools for the 2018-2019 school year. It further proposes the possibility of consolidating Northern Vance and Southern Vance High Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. Jackson stressed that the consolidation proposal is the result of several years of declining student enrollment across the district and the need to improve the efficient and financial sustainability of school operations.

Vance County Schools students' musical talents have shown through during their "Sounds of the Seasons" performances at the Administrative Services Center in December. Students performed seasonal and holiday musical selections in the Board Room of the building. They sang, danced and played instruments to the songs. The hard work that students have put in this school year with their music teachers is really evident in their outstanding performances.
