Mission:

Craven County Schools Secondary Support Staff will assist teachers as they rigorously challenge all students to graduate from high school and be globally competitive for post-secondary education, work, and life in the 21st century.

Goals:

  • Coach teachers in current pedagogy.

Overview:

Craven County High Schools are committed to providing a learning environment in which all students are challenged to excel in a rigorous and relevant curriculum while providing the support each student needs to be successful, to graduate from high school and to be prepared to enter college or the workforce.   Programs are also offered to meet students’ needs and interests and to allow for acceleration.

A variety of instructional strategies are implemented to involve students in the educational process and to provide them opportunities to reach their maximum potential.  Various types of assessments are used to inform both instructional and intervention decisions and to evaluate knowledge.

Teachers receive high quality professional development and are supported by our Learning Systems Coaches.
