On Wednesday, January 8 Superintendents and Board of Education members representing school districts from southeastern North Carolina will participate in a special regional legislative breakfast. Sponsored by the Southeastern Education Alliance, the meeting will be an opportunity to celebrate state and local elected officials for their hard work and contributions following the devastation experienced due to Hurricane Florence.
The school systems attending represent counties greatly impacted by Hurricane Florence, and include Brunswick, Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Jones, Lenoir, New Hanover, Onslow, Pamlico, Pender, Sampson, Wayne and Clinton City. Various storm-related topics will be covered during roundtable conversations which will allow participants to share lessons learned from Hurricane Florence. Leaders will also have the chance to discuss opportunities for improvements should a similar disaster be faced in the future.
Many organizations across the state and nation assisted during our time of need and demonstrated their compassion for our students, their families, and staff. The meeting will provide a chance to speak to this support and share the work of each county’s recovery efforts.
Finally, superintendents and board of education members will also touch on legislative educational priorities moving into 2020.
Please join us as we celebrate and consider continuous efforts of support for public education starting at 8:30 a.m. at the ENC Regional Skills Center located at 261 Northwest Corridor Blvd. Burton Industrial Park, Jacksonville, NC.
