Purpose Statement for CCS Program Choice
Program Choice is the opportunity for families to choose an instructional style or theme that is a best fit for their student. Program Choice in Cabarrus County Schools allows parents to apply for a program of interest while still maintaining enrollment in our local public school system. School assignment is determined by the students' address.
Program Choice serves three purposes in Cabarrus County:
- To improve academic achievement by providing challenging curriculum
- To provide parents with program options to select the most appropriate delivery method for their child(ren)
- To promote and maintain diversity in our schools
Each program is centered on a theme or adheres to a specific program of study.
The application process is open to any student who lives within the Cabarrus County School District and meets the criteria for entrance.
