The North Carolina Education Directory is prepared and distributed annually by the Department of Public Instruction’s Division of Communication and Information Services as a service to educators and others interested in public education. The directory provides information on the State Board of Education, the Department of Public Instruction, educational associations and commissions, and individual school systems and charter schools.

I appreciate the valuable assistance from school superintendents and others who supplied the information for the directory, and I hope it will be helpful to you.




June St. Clair Atkinson, Ed.D., State Superintendent
