In its first meeting of the new year, the State Board of Education (SBE) welcomed newly-elected Superintendent of Public Instruction, Catherine Truitt, as well as Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, to join the discussion and voting on critical education topics such as testing and accountability, teacher licensure, and broadband Internet expansion. State Board members officially approved a state testing plan addendum and waiver request to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Education, and continued to review legislative and budget priorities for the upcoming legislative session. The Board also shared some exciting news regarding additional funding for the NC Education Corps Initiative.
The new year may bring us a continued pandemic, but it also brings us a new Congress, a new administration and a fifth COVID emergency supplemental, complete with more than $50 billion in funding for K12 education. Before adjourning for the holiday season, Congress was able to pass—and the president ultimately signed—a fifth COVID emergency supplemental.
The State Board of Education (SBE) held its monthly meeting remotely on November 2-3. The pages that follow summarize highlights from the meeting and the Board’s actions for this month. For complete SBE information, visit their website: http://stateboard.ncpublicschools.gov/
