Is your student in danger of failing courses this semester? Parents and students should be aware that NC House Bill 769 states that the revocation of a student's driving permit or license will result if the student is unable to maintain adequate progress or drops out of school. Adequate progress is passing 70% of all courses enrolled. If students fail more than one course first semester, driver permits or licenses will be revoked by DMV. Students will not be able to get them back until the end of 2nd semester if they are passing 3 out of 4 classes at that time.


There will be a virtual Parent Night for 9th-11th grade students on Thursday November 12. Topics covered will include grade level information, career services, college preparation, military, NCAA, Career and College Promise, and mindfulness. The link to watch will be available on the Student Services website November 12 at 6pm; however, you can watch it any time after this date!
