– District Plans to Monitor Teacher Absenteeism to Ensure School Safety –
New Hanover County Schools is very aware of the plans for some teachers across the state to be absent on May 16, 2018, in order to participate in the Raleigh protest. The district will continue to monitor the number of planned teacher absences here in New Hanover County. At this time, our goal is to keep the schools open. We are working with our principals to ensure classroom instruction and necessary student support services can be provided to our students without interruption. Our primary focus continues to be on delivering a quality education to all our students and ensuring they are in a safe and conducive learning environment. This commitment continues each day, even on days when one or more of our teachers are absent. Should this position have to change, we will update this status.
