There’s a new push to allow North Carolina teachers to carry guns in school that some state lawmakers think has a chance of being approved this year.

The School Security Act of 2019, filed Wednesday, would boost the salaries of teachers who underwent specialized police training to carry firearms on campus. The same bill was filed last year and died in committee, but Sen. Jerry Tillman, one of the new sponsors of Senate Bill 192, said that the climate has changed to give the legislation more support this year.

The average salary for a North Carolina public school teacher has risen 5 percent to nearly $54,000 this year.

New figures released Wednesday by the state Department of Public Instruction estimate the average salary for teachers to be $53,975 — $2,741 more than the previous school year. The new number is 20 percent more than the $44,990 average salary five years ago.

North Carolina Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s two-year budget would seek to borrow twice as much as state House Republicans are proposing in their respective proposed construction bond referendums.

Cooper pitched the borrowing and several other education-related parts of his spending proposal on Tuesday at a conference in Greensboro. They include raises for all public school teachers, restoring a pay bump for teachers with master’s degrees and providing tens of millions of dollars toward school safety and health staff and improvements.

A Wake County judge on Wednesday reinstated a decade-old judgment against the state for hundreds of millions of dollars in civil fines that weren’t paid to school districts over several years.

Under the state constitution, fines collected by state agencies are supposed to be turned over to school districts, but the state diverted that money to other uses between 1996 and 2005. School districts sued and won a $747.8 million judgment against the state in 2008.

North Carolina school districts worried about meeting smaller state-mandated K-3 class sizes could get relief from lawmakers.

Legislation filed last week would allow the State Board of Education to grant waivers to elementary schools that say they don’t have the classroom space or teachers needed to meet the smaller class sizes. House Bill 251 comes as K-3 class sizes are set to drop over the next two years, something that school leaders around the state say will be hard to meet.

A bill from House Speaker Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, to put a $1.9 billion school building bond before voters received favorable approval in the House K-12 education committee yesterday.

It includes about $1.5 billion for K-12 schools, and about $200 million each for the UNC System and Community College System.

“I very often…don’t file bills. It’s generally not the role of the Speaker,” Moore said. “But I felt this issue was important enough to do it this year.”

Too Many of America’s Public Schools Are Crumbling — Literally. Here’s One Plan to Fix Them.

Every school day, some 50 million students and 6 million adults go to nearly 100,000 public schools across the country, amounting to about 1 in 6 Americans. Too many of them enter buildings that are crumbling — literally — and that suffer from problems, including poor air and water quality, mold, broken toilets and rodents.

Yet while research has shown that high-quality facilities have a positive effect on student achievement, and staff and teacher retention and student truancy rates, districts defer costs year after year. According to the National Council on School Facilities, the nation’s PK-12 public school buildings are valued collectively at nearly $2 trillion, and the deferred investment in upkeep is estimated to be between $271 billion and $542 billion. That’s more than a 2014 government report estimated.

The wave of educator unrest last year, in which teachers walked the picket lines and stormed state capitals by the thousands, led to substantial increases in school funding in places like Arizona, North Carolina, Oklahoma and West Virginia.

But the increases were not enough to make up for the steep cuts that those states made since the Great Recession in 2008, and in many cases, the funding mechanisms for the new money aren’t sustainable in the long-term.

Schools That Lead, in partnership with the NC General Assembly and the NC Department of Public Instruction, is excited to announce it will launch its second cohort of North Carolina Networked Improvement Communities for public schools seeking to improve learning outcomes for their students.

In this network, principals and teachers learn to use improvement science to articulate their theories and assumptions, select change ideas and measure impact over time as they work to solve a common problem, seen here by school level.

  1. High schools: Increasing on-time graduation rates;
  2. Middle schools: Reducing 9th grade retentions; and
  3. Elementary schools: Reducing the number of students who have below grade level academic performance, and/or chronic absences and/or behavioral issues.

The total three-year membership fee is $6,000 per school, payable to Schools That Lead in $2,000 increments each year of the three-year program, or by other mutually agreeable terms. Schools should also budget for the costs of travel and substitute teachers for the professional learning sessions.

East Carolina University’s Department of Educational Leadership was awarded a five year, $9.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The focus of Project I4 is K-12 school leaders and how they engage with math and science teachers in their schools to improve teaching practices and academic discourse for equitable student outcomes.

Participants will earn a 9 credit Micro-credential (MC). These credits can be used toward the ECU Ed.D. in Educational Leadership. The MC is a year-long experience beginning with a one week Learning Exchange on campus in late July. This is followed by on-line and in-school classroom experiences in the fall and spring led by ECU instructors and small group facilitators. The MC concludes back on campus the following summer. An innovative feature of Project I4 is the development and testing of a virtual reality simulation of STEM classrooms to enable principals to practice observing and giving feedback in a game setting.

Recruitment for MC Cohort I has now begun. For more information contact the Project I4 lead, Dr. Matt Militello at: [email protected].
