Welcome Letter

  • Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Person County Schools' Report Cards. School performance grades (A-F), as required by the state law, are included on the school-level Report Cards for our schools. The law requires student proficiency to count 80 percent and academic growth to count 20 percent of the grade.  The NC Report Card includes important information about individual school performance, class sizes, attendance, school safety, instructional resources, and teacher quality. With the new grading system in place for schools, it is important to look at the entire report and talk with school staff members to clarify questions or learn more about the school. Our goal is for our parents and community members to learn more about our school system as a whole through the study of the State Report Card as well as other data provided on our district and school websites and social media outlets.

    Important notes about this year’s School Report Cards are listed below:

    Person County Schools has 73% of schools earning grades of C or better, while Person County Schools four-year high school cohort graduation rate rose 8.7%, moving to 87.3%. We are not satisfied with the results as they are; however, we are happy with the significant increase to the Graduation Rate. The Board of Education, administrators, and teachers are committed to improving scores and continuing to provide exceptional educational opportunities for every child.

    Person County Schools had 5 schools that met expected growth and 3 schools that exceeded growth expectations for the 2017-2018 school year.

    • 73% of Person County Schools met or exceeded academic growth goals
    • 100% of elementary schools met or exceeded academic growth goals
    • 50% of high schools met or exceeded academic growth goals.
