ALERT - WCPSS Two-Hour Delay - Friday, March 6

All Wake County Public School System schools will open on a two-hour delay on Friday, March 6, due to predictions of icy road conditions. The safety of our students, parents and staff remains our top priority.

 

Please pay close attention to media reports and the district web site for possible updates. WCPSS officials will continue to monitor the weather and road conditions throughout the county early Friday morning to determine when buses can safely transport students to school.

 

When schools are delayed:

    • Before-school programs will start on a delayed schedule.
    • Breakfast may be served at the principal's discretion if school is delayed one hour or more.
    • Athletic and extracurricular events will be canceled if school is closed or dismissed early

Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) Information

Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) is the practice of assigning a student to a higher-grade level than is typical, given the student's age, for the purpose of providing access to appropriately challenging learning opportunities. SSA is an accelerative practice that allows students to show mastery of the content of a course without having taken the course. For example, a parent could nominate his/her child to skip a grade level of content in either Language Arts OR Mathematics.

WCPSS Parent Academy

The Wake County Public Schools System is excited to announce their first Parent Academy Catalog (see attachment). The catalog contains a series of free skill-building classes, workshops, and educational events aimed at helping families learn to engage with the school system and contribute positively to their child’s academic and social success.

The Parent Academy is a Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) initiative designed to strengthen the relationship between parents/guardians and schools and to help parents navigate the school system. Research shows that students achieve more when parents are involved in their child’s education.

This is a partnership with a diverse team of WCPSS educators and local community agencies, organizations, businesses, schools, and faith-based institutions.

 

For more information, please click on the Parent Academy banner on the right side of the page.
