To Parents, Community Members, and Educational Partners of the Public Schools of Robeson County:
I realize that the Public Schools of Robeson County must extend all possible efforts to nurture a prevalent culture of high expectations throughout the system in order to improve academically. This culture in the classroom requires a high level of rigor and a strong focus on the North Carolina Standards (Common Core) as outlined by our Department of Public Instruction. Some important improvement strategies that we will be using include providing a strong focus on K-2 literacy, building vocabulary, integrating digital learning, retraining administrators and teachers on the Common Core, aligning the written-taught- test curricula, and problem solving techniques (math and other areas). Additionally, we hope that this culture of high expectations in the classroom will better enable students to apply and transfer the knowledge, skills, and abilities that they earn across the curriculum and into their daily lives.
The entire staff of the Public Schools of Robeson County School System actively solicits the continued support of all of our parents and stakeholders to join our family in helping us to provide a sound, basic education for the 24,000 students we serve. We plan to use this Strategic Plan as a blueprint for our planning, implementing, and evaluating of our academic growth and for moving our school system forward in our quest to achieve educational excellence. Thank you for your support in the implementation of this plan of action for improvement.
