At the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year it is important for parents to understand state law and local school policies to make their child’s learning experience the best it can be. North Carolina law states that a child 5 years old on or before August 31 is eligible for public school kindergarten, or first grade if the child will be 6 by the same date. NC law also states that children between the ages of 7 and 16 must attend a school. Our public school system provides information on student attendance requirements for each grade level at their website, www.henderson.k12.nc.us. On screen right click ‘PARENTS’ then click “Attendance.” In addition to our 23 public schools, there are at least nine private schools for children 7 through 16 in our county.


October 31, 2010

Technology has become a necessary tool everywhere, especially in the modern classroom. Each school in our public school system has a website and offers information to students, parents and other interested citizens. The basic information - school policies, school menus, school calendars, is available. Besides the basics, the Henderson County Public Schools offers technology that can better service teachers and students. At many of the school websites forms necessary for parents to sign are available online. There is also up to date information on health and safety issues. Henderson County Public School website is an important link between education and our community. Check www.henderson.k12.nc.us.
