Governor Cites ‘Taxpayer-Funded Resegregation’ of Meck Schools in Veto of NC Bill; General Assembly Overrides Veto

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed a 20-page “technical corrections bill” that eases the path for four Mecklenburg towns to create their own charter schools, setting up a Christmas-week showdown with departing legislators.

The bill covers a grab bag of topics, including a provision that makes municipal charter school employees eligible for state benefits. Cooper cited that, along with a section on water quality protection, in his statement announcing the veto.

“(M)unicipal charter schools set a dangerous precedent that could lead to taxpayer funded re-segregation,” his statement says.

Two Triangle school systems don’t plan to back away from their efforts to reduce student suspensions, even as the Trump Administration moves to undo federal policies designed to reduce racial discrimination in school discipline.

A federal school safety panel led by U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos recommended Tuesday rolling back the 2014 guidance issued by the Obama Administration that warned school districts they could be investigated if minority students are suspended at disproportionately high rates.

A little over a year ago, North Carolina officials proudly unveiled revamped school report cards that Superintendent Mark Johnson described as “the kind of information (parents) need, in an accessible format we can understand.”

Data about each school’s academic performance, teacher qualifications and school climate can be especially helpful to families deciding whether to apply for magnet, charter or private schools.

But this year’s data won’t be posted until after most such applications close, state officials said this week.

Not long ago the New York-based World Science Foundation went looking for teens who can shape the future. They sought outstanding math skills, a creative mindset and a desire to network with leading scientists to solve problems.

In other words, “we’re cultivating genius,” says Mark German, who led the quest for the first 45 “world science scholars.” His group found three of them in Charlotte.

Three months have passed since Hurricane Florence made landfall in the southeastern part of North Carolina. The waters have subsided and much of the debris has been cleared. A drive through most of the main streets of the region reveal little of the impact Florence made.

But the reminders are scattered about. You see them at town dumps, heaping with discarded furniture and memories. You see them in the tree stumps, and other remains from the millions of bushes and shrubs felled before they even had a chance to turn colors for the fall.

At the beginning of the 2018-19 school year, a distressing trend became clear for administrators at Wilson County Schools.

Nearly 400 students of the 11,422 who had been listed on the rolls and expected to attend didn’t show up. On the sixth day of school, when it became clear that the school system was missing a large number of children, instructions were sent to each school principal to find out where the children had gone.

Jack Silva didn’t know anything about how children learn to read. What he did know is that a lot of students in his district were struggling.

Silva is the chief academic officer for Bethlehem, Pa., public schools. In 2015, only 56 percent of third-graders were scoring proficient on the state reading test. That year, he set out to do something about that.

Educators in rural communities face unique challenges, but they also have special strengths that aren’t always found in urban and suburban schools. In California,where 60 percent of districts are in towns or rural areas, a new project is leveraging those strengths to help educators connect with one another and get the support they need.

The California Rural Ed Network started in 2017 but recently launched an online resource bank that offers free informational and professional development articles about topics relevant to rural educators, such as teacher recruitment and adverse childhood experiences. The bank includes materials that were handpicked by experts as well as user-generated content, which researchers are in the process of vetting and verifying, said Rindy DeVoll, the network’s chair and a former teacher in Tehama County.

Youth who regularly participate in high-quality programs develop strong social skills, are excited about learning, improve work habits and grades, improve school day attendance, have higher graduation rates, explore career paths and gain workforce skills. However, the North Carolina Center for Afterschool Programs (NC CAP) recognizes that many factors have the potential to serve as barriers or challenges for programs serving youth, especially those in rural communities. The purpose of the POWER UP Program and mini-grants is to provide programs in pre-determined rural counties with resources and on-going technical support over the course of two years to build program capacity.

Interested programs must currently serve youth afterschool, before school or during the summer months in one of the following counties:

Anson, Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Caswell, Columbus, Duplin, Edgecombe, Halifax, Hertford, Lenoir, McDowell, Martin, Nash, Northampton, Person, Richmond, Robeson, Rockingham, Scotland, Tyrrell, Vance, Warren, Washington or Wilson.

To learn more about this program, please visit: https://ncafterschool.org/power-up-program.

Applications for NC CAP’s POWER UP Program are due by January 11th and can be submitted here.

Fellowship projects have a unique set of criteria that in some cases is restricted by district, grade level, and subject. Projects vary from scientific research to work experiences in the agriculture, energy and high-tech manufacturing industries. Each Fellow is awarded at least a $5,000 stipend and must develop and implement relevant educational materials and/or programs based on their internship experience. Fellows remain in the classroom while completing the year-long fellowship.

Applicants must submit an essay detailing their desire to have influence beyond the classroom and two letters of recommendation. Final candidates are invited for an in-person interview to be conducted in their local area. Fellowships are based on funding and awarded each spring.

FAST NC Fundraising Drive to Aid Public Schools

A historic storm has devastated parts of North Carolina. In response, a historic, bipartisan coalition of current and former state education leaders presented their effort to aid schools to the State Board of Education, promoting Florence Aid to Students and Teachers (FAST NC) as a drive to help North Carolina’s public schools as students and educators struggle to return to normal.

Hurricane Florence caused at least 1.2 million, or about 80 percent, of North Carolina’s public school students to miss some school. Many school buildings are damaged, and several school districts are still closed due to displacement, flooding and storm-related disruptions. Now, FAST NC has brought together an illustrious steering committee for the effort to help schools recover.

The Friday Report is published weekly by the Public School Forum of NC and is distributed to Forum members, policymakers, donors, media, and Forum subscribers. Archived editions can be found at www.ncforum.org.
