Superintendent’s Welcome Letter
We provide regular updates to you about your student’s academic progress by sending home a Report Card. Once a year we provide you with updates on our school’s achievements through the North Carolina School Report Card. This Report Card includes important information about school and student performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources and teacher quality.
For the fourth year, each school has received a letter grade to describe its performance. These school performance grades are comprised of student achievement (80 percent) and growth (20 percent).
I have enclosed with this letter a summary of our Report Card called the Report Card Snapshot. Our school’s full Report Card can be found on the NC School Report Cards’ website at www.ncpublicschools.org/src. Also, our school district’s report is available on the Report Card website. School Report Cards are provided for regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools that were open during the 2016-2017 school year.
State and local education leaders are committed to providing parents with more information about schools. Well-informed parents who participate in their children’s education and school enhance the learning environment for students and educators alike. In addition, the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires schools to issue Report Cards.
At Camden County Schools your involvement is very important to the success of our schools! I encourage you to review our Report Card carefully, then feel free to contact me directly to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding the Report Card. I also welcome your feedback regarding other interests you have in our schools.
Thank you for allowing me to share this Report Card with you and thank you for supporting our efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
Joe Ferrell, Ed. D.
Camden County Schools Superintendent
