Inclement Weather Closings & Updates

There will be no school for students of the Carteret County Public School System tomorrowTuesday, October 6, 2015. There will be an optional teacher workday on a two-hour delay.This decision was made after much careful consideration of the road conditions throughout the county. Again tomorrow, the predicted morning and afternoon high tides, which are extraordinarily higher than normal, will continue to swamp roads throughout the county. Today's excessive rains have compounded the roadway problems. There are some areas in the county that do not have these extreme conditions; however, buses, parents, students, and staff drive many of the impacted secondary roads.For these reasons, there will be no school tomorrow.

Inclement Weather Make Up Day

The makeup day for today's missed school day will be Monday, October 12, 2015. Makeup days are set when the school calendar is approved each year. The school calendar can be found at http://www.carteretcountyschools.org/

New Grading Scale for High School

Beginning this year all high schools in North Carolina will be on a 10 point grading scale.  Under the new scale grades and grade point average calculations will be applied as follows:

Letter Grade Grade Range QPA
A 90-100 4.0
B 80-89 3.0
C 70-79 2.0
D 60-69 1.0
F <59 0.0

The new quality points standard will provide an additional .5 quality point to Honors courses and a 1.0 additional quality point to Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate courses, community colleges courses, or four year university or college courses taken in high school.

PLEASE NOTE:  New standards for quality points will take effect for the ninth graders in the fall of 2015-16 and all students entering high school after that year. This quality points change will not affect students who will be in grades 10, 11 or 12 in 2015-16.
