Welcome and thank you for taking time to learn more about Onslow County Schools.
What a tremendous opportunity we have today as we join together in preparing students for a future much different than that of previous years. On behalf of Onslow County Schools and the Board of Education, we are pleased that you are taking time to meet us through our school system website. It is a distinct honor to serve as the superintendent of this school system and to work with a dedicated group of professionals who are engaged in the most important work in this country today, the education of our young people.
Onslow County Schools is a growing school system and is currently among the fifteen largest systems in the state of North Carolina. Our local community and school communities have a strong collaborative relationship, working together to provide an atmosphere of support for educational innovation and opportunity for all students. As we focus on the system vision of Excellence in Education, we recognize that the rapidly changing world around us will impact this work.
The system mission includes providing students with the necessary skills and knowledge to be responsible and successful in the 21st century. A strong teaching staff, exemplary school leaders, and committed support staff have embraced this challenge. We are excited to know that our parents, students, and community members will be sharing in this mission, as well. There is a strong appreciation for the support of those involved in the educational process as we strive to have every student reach his or her potential.
Thank you for joining us on this journey into an innovative 21st century of learning. We encourage you to utilize the system website regularly to learn more about our district, schools and some of the special items of interest occurring across the system. The technology advancements available today have allowed for a greater opportunity to share information and good news surrounding our local education system. I hope you will find this resource valuable as we continue to expand our avenues for communicating with our public.
