Student, Parent, & Community Resources
Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), is a college readiness system used in schools nationwide. AVID strategies are based upon research-based instructional practices and are beneficial for all students.
Classes for credit toward graduation, opportunity for industry certification, community-business partnerships, and participation in award-winning student organizations are all available through our CTE programs.
Each high school student collaborates with the school's Career Development Coordinator (CDC) and the School Counselor to develop, review, and update an annual plan for graduation. The intent of this plan is to prepare students for College & Career Readiness after high school.
Beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year, all high schools in North Carolina will offer interested students the opportunity to earn credit for courses without the traditional seat-time requirement. This process, termed "Credit by Demonstrated Mastery" (CDM), begins with an initial application period in late January 2015. Students and parents may review information through our district CDM webpage (listed under "Quicklinks" below).
North Carolina joins numerous other states in adopting the Common Core Standards for English and Mathematics. In addition, our state adopted new curriculum standards in all other content areas.
