Hoke County Schools' Accreditation Confirmed

posted Sep 18, 2017, 1:16 PM by JODIE BRYANT

Hoke County Schools has received district-wide accreditation from AdvancED following an external review of the school system's processes and procedures in three primary areas: Teaching and Learning Impact, Resource Utilization and Leadership Capacity.  On September 12, 2017, the Hoke County Board of Education, superintendent, central office staff, and principals joined Executive Director of Federal Programs Erica Fortenberry as they received plaques confirming the accreditation. 

Hoke County Schools performed significantly higher than the national average on each area reviewed.  For Teaching and Learning Impact, Hoke County Schools received a score of 319 out of 400, compared to 268 nationally. For Resource Utilization, Hoke County Schools received a score of 347, compared to 286 nationally. For Leadership Capacity, Hoke County Schools received a score of 376, compared to 293 nationally. Hoke County Schools received an overall score of 341, compared to 278 nationally.

The accreditation process serves several purposes. It guarantees that our students are graduating from an accredited school district, it gives families confidence in the education their children are receiving, it lets our community know that we are dedicated to continuous improvement, and it ensures that all
of our schools and departments are aligned in our efforts to provide a quality education to our students.  Hoke County Schools received its last accreditation in 2012. The district will repeat the accreditation process every five years.

HOKE COUNTY SCHOOLS RECEIVES NCDPI “GREEN RIBBON AWARD”

posted Feb 14, 2017, 7:19 AM by JODIE BRYANT

Hoke County Public Schools recently received the Green Ribbon School District Award from the North  Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) Safe and Healthy Schools Support Division and will now represent the state in national competition.
 
The U.S. Department of Education initiated the Green Ribbon Schools Award program in 2011 to honor schools and school districts that “exercise a comprehensive approach to creating ‘green’ environments through reducing environmental impact, promoting health, and ensuring a high-quality environmental and outdoor education to prepare students with the 21st century skills and sustainability concepts needed in the growing global economy.”
 
NCDPI Chief Financial Officer for Operations Ben Matthews congratulated district staff for being selected to represent North Carolina and wished them well in the national competition. “Hoke County schools’ staff and students are doing an exemplary job of reducing their environmental impact by providing green learning environments and showing students how to minimize their ecological footprints. These are lessons that will definitely pay forward,” he said.
 
The Green Ribbon Schools Award is the first comprehensive federal policy for schools related to environment, health and education. It describes a thoughtful vision for the nation’s schools, sets a high bar for success, and raises the profile of individual green schools and the states that encourage them.
 
National award recipients will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in July. Visit the Green Ribbon Schools Award program website for more information.
