Hargrave completes N.C. Next Generation Superintendents Development Program

Scotland County Schools’ Superintendent Dr. Ron Hargrave was among 21 superintendents from across the state to graduate from the North Carolina Next Generation Superintendents Development Program Cohort II.  The program is designed to support the growth, expansion, and enhancement of superintendents using the North Carolina Superintendents Standards, through a formative process that advances the stated purposes of the North Carolina Evaluation process, noted Jack Hoke, program coordinator and the executive director of the North Carolina School Superintendents’ Association.

The year-long program was comprised of eight face-to-face sessions that guided superintendents as they reflected on and improved their effectiveness as district leaders; focused on their personal leadership goals and linked personal goals with district and state goals; and guided and facilitated the professional development of superintendents toward advanced levels of executive leadership as defined by the North Carolina Standards for Superintendents.

Scotland hosts athletic recuiting and eligibility workshop

College recruiting and eligibility requirements can be a tricky concept for prospective student-athletes and parents.

On Tuesday, Scotland athletic director and football coach Richard Bailey cleared the air with an NCAA eligibility workshop in the school’s auditorium.

Bailey, who discussed various topics from SAT and ACT scores to core class requirements to what collegiate athletic programs look for in a potential student-athlete, drew on personal experiences from his time as a college student as well as his coaching tenures at Jack Britt and Scotland.

His overall message to the parents and students in attendance: work towards dreams, but have realistic expectations in doing so.

IEJ's 'Night of the Notables'



If you visited I. Ellis Johnson Elementary School recently, you may have recognized some famous faces.  While presenting their project-based learning assignments, students in Mrs. Buda and Mrs. Fisher's 3rd- grade classes portrayed notable people in history such as Albert Einstein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Florence Nightingale, and even Elvis!  The cross-curricular project involved the students completing detailed research, memorization of facts and information about the person they portrayed, public speaking and presentation skills, creativity to design their storyboards and outfits for their character, and a tremendous amount of fun and learning!
