Parents, please acquaint yourself with the districts's attendance policy. Policy Code 4400 D.- If a student is absent from school for five or more days in a semester, the principal or a committee established by the principal shall consider whether the student’s grades should be reduced because of the absences. The principal or committee shall review other measures of academic achievement, the circumstances of the absences, the number of absences, and the extent to which the student completed missed work.
Class attendance and participation are critical elements of the educational process and may be taken into account in assessing academic achievement. Students are expected to be at school on time and to be present at the scheduled starting time for each class. Students who are excessively tardy to school or class may be suspended for up to two days for such offenses.

As members of the North Carolina High-Tech Learning Accelerator (NCHTLA) Advisory Council, two of our high school students, Briannah Royster and Joshua Hernandez, and our innovation lead, Dr. Destiney Ross-Putney, had the opportunity to participate in a two-day design lab in Wilmington, NC. Thirty-two students and nineteen innovation leads across the state worked in collaborative groups to tackle the design question, "What kinds of learning experiences might you design to help students learn about, prepare for, and pursue high-tech jobs?"
Arts Alive 2022 gave us a day full of art and appreciation, as our Vance County Schools students showcased their talents through visual and performing arts, as well as a culinary art experience.

Vance County Schools held a ribbon cutting today for Gargoyle Garden, a musical garden located at the Center for Innovation (CFI), located at 219 Charles Street. The garden is filled with musical instruments that provide experiences for students to learn about beats, music, echo, reverberation and much more! The garden is named after the gargoyles positioned across the facade as part of the 1930's construction of the building.
Students at Dabney Elementary School have been afforded the opportunity to enhance their reading selections, as their library grew substantially during 2021-2022.
