The Hickory Ridge High School Lady Bulls also competed for the Championship, falling by only two points to Northern Guilford. The team finished the season 31-1 as state runners-up and as champions of the Southern Piedmont 3A Conference where they were 18-0. Congratulations to both teams!
Our district Budget Committee has been hard at work prioritizing district needs for the coming school year so that we can present a budget proposal first, to our Board of Education, and then, to the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners. The Budget Committee is comprised of school district staff – including my Cabinet, senior leaders, principals, teachers and a teacher assistant – a county commissioner, county staff, Board of Education members, parents, and community members.
Our district’s partnership with our County Commissioners is the envy of school systems across the state. We are fortunate that our commissioners understand and appreciate the value a strong school system brings to the county, and they are committed to supporting us. For that, I am extremely grateful.
To ensure fairness in setting budget priorities, we are using the TregoED process, a collaborative problem-solving and decision-making tool. And to ensure transparency in the process, our Board will hold its Budget Work Session on Thursday, March 23rd at 6 p.m. You are welcome to attend.
