Welcome to Lenoir County Public Schools' Common Core and Essential Standards website.

North Carolina is currently in the process of the l
argest curriculum revision in the state's history.  In June of 2010, NC adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts which includes literacy in science and social studies.  In addition, NC has developed new Essential Standards for all other subject areas.  This site has been created as an area for teachers and support staff to access news and resources related to the new common core and essential standards.  Click here for an introductory letter from our Superintendent and the LCPS Curriculum Department.

What is Lenoir County doing to implement the new standards?
