Real D.E.A.L. awardParsley is a Real D.E.A.L. School!

Feb. 1, 2007: Parsley was selected as a semi-finalist (one of 30) in Governor Easley's recognition of schools that are great places to teach and learn: Real D.E.A.L. (Dedicated Educators, Administrators, and Learners) Schools. Schools are selected based on excellent student test scores (EOGs) and exceptional working conditions as reported by staff members in an online survey in the spring of 2006. This year the semi-finalist schools submitted an essay outlining the qualities that make their school a great place to teach and learn - qualities that can replicated at any school.  Then, if selected, a semi-finalist school received a site visit by members of the Governor's Teacher Advisory Parsley's representatives at the Real D.E.A.L. conferencdCommittee.

On Feb. 2, Dr. Morris, Superintendent of NHCS, came to Parsley to present the award and banner to (principal) Mr. Zentmeyer.  It was broadcast live to all our students and staff so they could share in the honor we have received and earned together.

The Teacher Working Conditions survey, a Governor Easley initiative, was taken every two years. The first survey was conducted in 2002.  Parsley was selected as a state semi-finalist (one of 28) in 2004.
