Welcome
Welcome to Granville County Schools! Our district is a K-12 public school system located in central northern North Carolina serving approximately 8,000 students in 21 schools. Located just north of the cities of Raleigh and Durham, Granville County is close enough to enjoy the amenities provided by our neighboring larger cities, but still rural enough to enjoy the close-knit community and down-home hospitality and charm made famous in our state.

Granville County is geographically large, spanning more than 500 square miles, much of which consists of rolling hills and fertile farmland. We have several prominent towns and small cities, including the county seat of Oxford, population just under 9,000, and Butner and Creedmoor to the south. Our county borders two popular recreation destinations, Falls Lake to the south, and Kerr Lake to the north.

Every Student: Actively Learning, Accepting Others, AchievingEvery Teacher and Staff Member: Leading, Learning, Loving ChildrenEvery Parent and Community Member: Invited, Invested, Involved


OUR CORE VALUES

Agility – As an agile organization, we strive to increase the capacity for faster and more flexible responses to the needs of our students and other stakeholders.


Continuous Process Improvement - Based upon our belief that each employee strives for personal best, improvement in efficiency and effectiveness is rooted in monitoring, modifying, and changing organizational processes.


Customer Focus – A quality organization’s primary goal is to meet and exceed customers’ needs.  The first step is knowing our customers and building a system to meet their needs.


Data-driven Management – By using measurements and action toward improvement, we can understand how the system actually performs based upon data rather than opinion.  All decisions and actions for continuous improvement are driven by data and customer needs.


Leadership – Leadership at all levels must have the motivation and unwavering commitment to stay the course to bring about changes and innovations.  Vision and constancy of purpose are fundamental components of leadership.



Learning-centered Education – Recognizing the potential and educational goals of each student, we place the focus of education in meeting learner needs  through high standards for instructional delivery and school organization.


Long-term Commitment – Lasting improvement is not the result of a “quick fix.”  Rather, it is the result of on-going commitment to identified principles.  Substantive, long-lasting quality takes time. 


Our Workplace is About People – We endeavor to create an environment that fosters trust, respect, synergy, camaraderie, empowerment, appreciation, innovation, high standards, and drives out fear.


Participatory Management – People are the most important assets of our system; therefore, all stakeholders will be involved and empowered to work together in improving system processes.


Social Responsibility – Holding ourselves to high standards for ethical behavior, citizenship, and protection of public health, safety, and the environment, we make every effort to model social responsibility in our community.


Systems Thinking – A system is a series of activities or processes that work in conjunction to benefit the entire organization. Each activity or process must work together to make our school system successful.


Teamwork – A commitment to teamwork and cooperation is vital to the success of our organization.  Recognizing that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, teamwork is encouraged and is at the heart of our system’s success.

SchoolBlocks offers a unique and powerful personalized search system. A member of the public, searching for "homework" might see an announcement from the school as the first result. However, if the user is logged in, they would see their teacher’s latest homework assignment as the top result.
