It’s an honor to serve in the role as Superintendent of Edgecombe County Public Schools. Our District vision statement “Focused, Connected and Ready” speaks to the heart of our work in Edgecombe County: We are Focused on doing the right things for children, Connected as a community of learners, and Ready to provide every child with an outstanding education.
Our Board of Education, administration and staff are committed to providing safe learning environments, educating every child and implementing strategies that will enable each student to achieve grade level proficiency and beyond. We are committed to preparing students to be globally competitive problem solvers who can be contributing members of society. Recognizing and investing in family involvement in our schools is paramount to our mission. Student achievement increases when the responsibility for children's learning is shared by the home, school and community. Strong communicative relationships both within the school system and throughout the school community are vital to growth in our school system. We welcome and encourage parent involvement!
We are very proud of many accomplishments in the past year including the outstanding growth we have made at several schools. For the first time since 2002 ECPS has 7 schools that exceeded growth! Many of our schools also made dramatic gains in overall student proficiency data in tested subjects. Lastly, ECPS has “Gone Global” with its new innovative and comprehensive Global Education focus that is growing 21st Century leaders and learners.
I am looking forward to leading instruction and providing your children with an outstanding education. Our expectations are high for this academic year! Working together we can all make a difference!
Thank you for your support,
John D. Farrelly
