SBE Strengthens Role in Halifax County Schools

Citing examples of unaddressed recommendations and heightened concern for the students, teachers, principals and staff in Halifax County Schools (HCS), the State Board of Education today sent a letter to the Halifax Board of Education stating that it will take a more direct role in the district's budget, employment decisions and student course assignment decisions effective immediately. The Board stressed that it is acting on behalf of the students in the district to support their quality education. To read more about this, please go to and look under News.
