Dear Whiteville City Schools Community Members,
As the new Superintendent of Whiteville City Schools, I present to you the 2013-2014 North Carolina School Report Cards:
Some points to consider when examining the report cards:
· North Carolina public school students are now required to meet a higher standard of proficiency on their End-of-Grade (EOG) and End-of-Course (EOC) tests.
· In the past, proficiency standards only addressed what students needed for success at the next grade level. The new proficiency standards address how ready students are for college and careers, and whether students are on track to be ready for high school graduation.
Individual school report cards are provided to give stakeholders a snapshot of how schools in our district compare to others in the district and the state.
Below you will find our schools' individual report cards:

Whiteville High School
Interim CTE FACS Teacher (Foods) Remainder of 2014-2015 School Year
The FACS teacher (Foods) instructs students on the technical and occupational skills of cooking and baking. The teacher provides students with appropriate, hands-on, learning activities and meaningful instruction. Thisposition monitors and evaluates student performance, develops and implements plans to improve student achievement, and maintains required records; and follows WCS's required procedures and practices. In addition,this position will develop student's competencies that allow them to successfully enter a post-secondary school and/or training program or entrance to the job market with the ability to function in a multifaceted industry that offers ever-expanding opportunities.
Whiteville City Schools is now accepting applications for the approved contractor list.
Credit by demonstrated mastery (CDM) is an option which allows students to exhibit mastery of a course’s content, receiving credit and a pass/fail grade for the course by taking an assessment and completing an artifact. North Carolina’s State School Board created Credit by Demonstrated Mastery in order to ensure students grow optimally in our public schools and have effective and worthwhile seat time. This initiative creates flexibility that allows students to progress as they demonstrate mastery of academic content, regardless of time, place, or pace of learning.
Whiteville City Schools will assess students and evaluate artifacts based on the same standards that are used to evaluate students earning course credit by traditional means. The achievement levels required to earn credit by demonstrating mastery reflects a more rigorous expectation of students who want to earn credit without seat-time.
There are two phases to the process:
An exam that establishes mastery of foundational skills and content for the course. This equals a “superior” scale score on the appropriate state assessment, or a 93% scale score for CTE assessments, or a 94% score on local assessments. Students only have one attempt at an exam for CDM.
If the student successfully completes Phase 1, they will be required to create an artifact that reflects a deep understanding of the content standards. The artifact will showcase their ability to apply the skills and knowledge expected at the end of a course.
