The Mission of the Hoke County School District, as a diversified community of lifelong learners, is to commit ourselves and others to challenge students to their full learning potentials, to develop each individual's mind, body, and heart, and to inspire students to become productive members of our global society, through an integrated instructional program.

Dear Hoke County Schools Staff:

Hoke County Vision:  The Hoke County School System is a world-class learning center.  We engage all members of our diverse student population in rigorous and relevant schoolwork that prepares them for the 21st Century.

Hoke County Mission:  All Hoke County Schools' students will graduate from high school, globally-competitive for work and post-secondary education, and prepared for life in the 21st Century.

We believe that educators can make or break a child's day, and ultimately impact their future.  Eleanor Roosevelt said, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."  We must continually work together to recognize that we truly do touch the future, thus the dreams of our children.  We must also create a professional, safe, secure and encouraging environment that our children may enjoy each day.

As Director of the Programs for Exceptional Children, I am dedicated and committed as I accept the challenge with great enthusiasm, to see our children prepared for life in the 21st century.


Lynn Blackshear-Ray, EC Director
