Instructional Services & Continuous Improvement

Welcome to the Onslow County Schools Department of Instructional Services and Continuous Improvement.  Included in this area of our website you will find pertinent information regarding all instructional divisions and services to schools, educators, parents and students.

Please keep in mind that Onslow County School System was the first school system in the state of North Carolina to achieve District SACS/CASI Accreditation in April of 2005.  It is this process of continuous improvement that molds us and drives us as a system of excellence.all Instructional Services within the school system and also many references to our continuous improvement efforts.

In November of 2006, the North Carolina State Board of Education released the vision, mission, and goals of the Future-Ready Students for the 21st Century Initiative.  In immediate response, the Onslow County School System utilized its' existing system for continuous improvement to address and implement the state's direction. As a system, we continue to realize our vision of Excellence in Education and strive daily to work towards our mission of preparing students to be globally competitive and responsible citizens in the 21st century.

As we move forward in our continuous improvement process, the 21st century expectations for educators and their students require learning environments that can meet the needs of all students.  The world for which we are preparing these students is changing exponentially with technology, economic development, and high-level skill development becoming an integral part of the focus for not only North Carolina but society as a whole.  Now more than ever, the task of providing opportunities for all students to be successful is a must.  Now more than ever with a true future focus, the Onslow County School System must provide new and challenging opportunities for our students in order to best meet the needs and growth of the greater community we serve. 

After careful and deliberate planning, our work continues.  As a system of excellence, we must strive to ensure that our students are globally and locally competitive, led by passionate, creative teachers, and involved in innovative and effective programming.  Through our continued focus, we must now consider and monitor 21st Century student outcomes.  The education community of Onslow County has been diligent in working closely with community partners, parents, business leaders, and local governmental agencies to introduce and secure new and innovative learning possibilities.

As we address what is new for 2017-2018 in the Onslow County School System's Instructional Program, let's consider first what is not new; what is and always has been a continuous journey to achieve Excellence in Education.  The constants remain the same:  37 outstanding schools, dedicated and visionary educators, a supportive community and eager, focused students.
