Of Note

Three items of note from the January 8 edition of the NC Public School Forum’s Friday Report seem to hold significance as the 2010-2011 budget season eases out of the gates:

  1. Don’t forget that we are already starting next state budget year facing $1B or pre-programmed cuts.
  2. North Carolina Virtual Public School is ranked 5th largest on-line school in the nation in terms of enrollment.
  3. Carteret County’s “Communities in Schools” was among the recipients for a share of the $13M in North Carolina General Assembly money for dropout prevention.
  4. The NC Dept of Commerce released economic tier rankings of the 100 counties for 2010.  The folks in gold tend to be around the cities and the coast.
