Pitt County Schools Early College High School

Pitt County Schools Early College High School
The Pitt County Schools Early College High School will open in the fall of 2015 with a promise of providing students with the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and two years of transferable college credit or an Associate's Degree. Located on the campus of Pitt Community College, the PCS Early College will provide a personalized, academically-energized environment at both the high school and college level for students who are first generation college bound and traditionally underrepresented in higher education, particularly in S.T.E.M. fields. PCS Early College will support students through what effectively becomes their first two years of college - typically the most vulnerable period for students from this target population. All for FREE!

Pitt County School Calendar 2011-2012

by Anthony Litz


Pitt County School Calendar 2011-2012The new Revised Pitt County Public School Calendar has been released. 

Click here for the PDF that you can print or download to your PC.

From the Pitt County School's Website:

July 12, 2011 - The State Budget Bill (House Bill 200) that was ratified on June 4, 2011, includes language that impacts school calendars for ALL school districts effective next school year.

The new legislation increases the minimum number of instructional days from 180 to 185 and the minimum number of instructional hours from 1,000 to 1,025.  Left in place are the parameters that school for students must not start before August 25th and must not end after June 10th.

With some disclaimers and waiver opportunities to the State Board of Education included, the legislation essentially eliminates the 5 days that were previously added to the calendar for protected teacher workdays.   Stricken from §115C-84.2 (School Calendar) as a result of this legislation is the following:  “Five days, as designated by the local board, for use as teacher workdays, These days shall be protected to allow teachers to complete instructional and classroom administrative duties.  The local school administrative unit shall not impose any additional tasks on these days.  The local board shall schedule one of these days at the beginning of the school year and one at the end of each academic quarter.”

Many groups lobbied to postpone the effective date of this action until the 2012-13 school year, as most all school districts had already approved and distributed their 2011-12 school calendars, but that did not occur.  However, the State Board of Education advised that it would be approving temporary waivers to this new requirement for districts that commit to using the five additional days to train teachers on the Common Core and new essential standards.  (The State Board also advised it will not be as flexible in future years.)

Pitt County Schools submitted a waiver request that was approved by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction meeting the required guidelines by providing a detailed “Scope of Work” plan showing how the waived instructional days will be used for professional development on the essential standards and the Common Core.  The new essential standards and Common Core standards are scheduled for classroom implementation in the 2012-13 school year.

The immediate impact of this action is that we must adjust our 2011-12 Calendar for Students and 10-Month Employees in several ways.

  • In accordance with the waiver approved from the State Superintendent, the following teacher workdays will be used for staff development on the essential standards and Common Core instruction. 
  •   October 28, January 18, March 2, March 23
  • December 19th will be added as an instructional day for students.  This was previously an unscheduled day. Corresponding with the changes above, make-up days for inclement weather have been adjusted as well as the placement of system designated workdays and the last day for staff.

Click here to review the revised calendar which reflects these revisions. This will be reprinted and redistributed to parents and students. We recognize there may be some confusion as the school calendar was already set, printed, and previously distributed.  We will do everything we can to communicate the correct dates and we will need your help as well. We also will need your help explaining that this late action was not a local decision but rather was directed by General Assembly legislation.

A national collaborative founded by Colin Powell to nurture America's youth today named Pitt County one of the nation's 100 best communities for young people.

America's Promise Alliance and Capital One Thursday announced the county has been named a winner in a national competition honoring the 100 best communities for young people to grow up.

Citing the county's ability to unite different sectors to work on behalf of its young people, officials picked Pitt from more than 750 participants in 300 communities that applied.

"The prosperity of every community and this country depends on how well we care for our children and youth," Marguerite W. Kondracke, president and CEO of America's Promise Alliance, said. "Although no place is perfect, when we have communities that make young people a priority and are working to make sure they stay in school and have all the resources necessary to lead healthy, productive lives, we must recognize them and by extension inspire other cities and towns to follow their lead."

Winners and participants in the third annual competition are eligible to apply for $300,000 in grants from the group beginning next month.

The group's partners include corporations, nonprofit service organizations, foundations, policymakers, advocacy organizations and faith groups – work collaboratively to ensure that it's "Five Promises" are kept for America's young people.

The promises include caring adults, safe places, a healthy start, effective education and opportunities to help others.

Communities completed an application based upon research from the National Academies of Science, Search Institute, Academy for Educational Development and Child Trends.

Officials submitted information on how their existing programs and initiatives help deliver the five promises.

Winners were chosen by a panel of judges including civic, business and nonprofit leaders.
