Year Round Schools are Coming to GCPS!
During this past fall, Superintendent Dr. Alisa McLean conducted a series of Kitchen Table Conversations held throughout the county. During this time, we repeatedly heard a desire for a CHOICE of Year-Round Schools for our students.
You spoke, we listened!
The Granville County Board of Education is moving forward with plans to introduce Year-Round School programs at the following schools as CHOICE programs (offered to all students in the district):
Butner Stem Elementary School
Butner-Stem Middle School
West Oxford Elementary School
Northern Granville Middle School
Each of these schools would operate with 2 separate calendars: one group of students on a traditional calendar, and one on a year-round schedule. In addition, these schools will identify thematic programs of instruction, including the possibility of Global Academies, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Programs.
Your Voice Counts!
As part of the next step in the process, we invite you to complete an interest survey about Year-Round schools. Your opinions and ideas will help us plan next steps.
