GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCT) – The North Carolina Board of Education approved the Wayne County Public Schools “Reform Model” application for Goldsboro High School.
It will allow the school district to have greater flexibility in how it structures and delivers education to students at the school.
“We are excited that the State Board of Education shares our vision for transforming Goldsboro High School,” states Dr. Michael Dunsmore, Superintendent. “We recognize that it will take a herculean effort to begin this ‘Reform Model’ by the start of the 2016-2017 school year. However, it will be worth the hard work when this innovative model is launched, and we can offer Goldsboro High greater calendar and scheduling flexibility, more curriculum opportunities, and increased access to resources and learning opportunities, including access to Wayne Community College courses and programs, to further engage students in their academic career.”
Here are a few goals that Goldsboro High will try and accomplish as a “Reform Model” school:
- Align the Goldsboro High calendar, schedule and instructional programs with Wayne Community College and Wayne School of Engineering, to provide students with the time on task and special assistance they need to thrive and succeed;
- Align available funding with the essential educational goals, and the services needed to help Goldsboro High students achieve those goals;
- Use licensure flexibility to fill the gaps in essential instructional services;
- Establish a culture of high expectations at Goldsboro High that is embraced by students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the supportive community as a whole.
