Stand Up for Public Schools
PENC has recently signed a resolution to support NCASA's campaign to build support and respect for public schools in North Carolina. It is NCASA’s goal to have every school and every district working together to build support and respect for public schools in North Carolina, telling their stories of success and engaging their communities in support and letting our legislators know that public schools matter. We encourage you to explore www.EveryChildsChanceNC.org, and to consider how this campaign might benefit your community, and to get involved.
2013-15 Legislative Agenda
The PENC Board approved the 2013-2015 Legislative Agenda at its meeting on February 2, 2013. The Agenda includes a platform developed based upon feedback from PENC members’ responses to a biennial survey distributed in December. The Agenda includes a number of positions on student and educator safety.

The Benefits of Membership
NC School Calendar Flexibility
Our goal is to restore flexibility for school systems to create their own calendars in order to align with community colleges, schedule make-up days for inclement weather, craft calendars to account for summer learning loss, etc.
