    Graduation season is upon. We celebrated our first graduates of the Class of 2018 at the Cabarrus-Kannapolis Early College High School graduation on May 19th. In a couple of weeks, we will celebrate the remaining seniors in our district at graduation ceremonies on June 8th and 9th. You can get all the graduation information you need from our graduation website, and during each graduation ceremony follow our real-time coverage on our social media platforms. Congratulations to all of our graduates!
    The Board of Education will hold a Public Hearing regarding the proposed closing of Beverly Hills Elementary School at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 4th at the Education Center. Individuals who would like to address the Board of Education during the Public Hearing may register to speak by either:


    • Registering in person prior to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 4th

    Each individual speaker may address the Board for three minutes, and individuals speaking on behalf of a group will have five minutes for comments. Groups must select one speaker as their representative. Speakers may only address the Board one time, in one capacity.

    The Student Realignment Committee continues its work on May 22nd at the Public Library in Downtown Concord. The committee begins at 5:30 p.m. Other committee meetings are scheduled to be held in June and July. The committee meetings are open to the public; however, only committee members are allowed to participate in the meeting. Visit the Student Realignment website for information about how to share feedback.
    We are in the final weeks of the school year, and that means it’s time for end-of-year testing. Students in elementary and middle school are preparing for end-of-grade (EOG) tests, and high school students are preparing for end-of-course (EOC) tests. Many of our schools are in need of proctors to assist with these tests. Please contact a school to volunteer. I know your assistance would be appreciated.
