N.C. Names First Global-Ready Schools

img_0183At the North Carolina State Board of Education meeting on November 3, 2016 four schools that received the Global-Ready School Designation were recognized. The program is the result of recommendations by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to ensure that every student graduating from a public school in the state is “prepared to be a globally engaged and productive citizen.” Requirements include strategies for improving curriculum in addition to professional development plans for educators to be more globally-aware. Go Global NC is a recognized partner in these efforts.

The schools recognized this year:

Model Level: Carolina Forest International Elementary School, Onslow County
