About:

The Board of Education places a high value on the establishment of effective communication with parents, community leaders, and the public. By establishing school-based Advisory Councils, the Board of Education has created a method for obtaining pertinent information concerning curricular, budgetary, and personnel needs as well as the maintenance and care of school facilities.


Our mission:

To improve the educational process for our children,

addressing critical issues of concern as the collective voice of parents.

To share in the decision-making process with our administration,

supporting and contributing to the effectiveness of educational programs.

To engage and empower our teachers, staff, and administration through a

collaborative process to positively impact the lives of students.

To address facilities concerns in regards to size, anticipated growth,

and overall safety for our children, teachers, staff, and administration.


For parents:

The Parent Advisory Council is here to support you. We encourage

every parent to read and familiarize themselves with the

Carteret County Code of Student Conduct as well as the

Carteret County School System Parent/Student Handbook.


Most concerns and complaints can be handled through informal means, with the complaint addressed at the level closest to where the complaint originated. For example, most classroom complaints would be first addressed to the teacher, and then the principal, as necessary.


If you need assistance or would prefer to discuss a PAC area of concern with a member of the committee, please do so through the provided contact email addresses.


If you would like to discuss a concern, please contact one of the board members.

The PAC meets the first week of each month (virtually during ongoing COVID restrictions).
