SCS Parents and Students,
The DPS Family Academy is offering free courses this fall that will help you connect with Durham Public Schools, support your child’s academic success and strengthen your family. These courses will be offered across Durham County at locations like Jordan and Northern high schools and the Holton Career and Resource Center. You can learn how to find and choose high quality child care, take control of your finances, better teach your child self-discipline, support a child with special needs, and more. To find out more, visit the DPS Family Academy website and read the fall 2013 course guide at www.dpsnc.net/parents/family-academy <http://www.dpsnc.net/parents/familyacademy>, or call (919) 287-4194.
New state standards, school performance, and your child:
Last year, the state adopted new standards designed to make our schools stronger and our students better prepared. You may have heard about “Common Core” standards or the “North Carolina Essential Standards”— these standards are in place for kindergarten through 12th grade, and will challenge our students to learn a more rigorous curriculum.
Please visit the DPS webpage for New Standards for more information.
