At its Dec. 6 legislative breakfast, representatives of the Iredell-Statesville School (I-SS) district discussed their legislative priorities for the 2019 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.

Those priorities include enhancing school safety measures to reduce school violence and protect students and staff; addressing staffing challenges in N.C. public schools to improve teacher recruitment and retention efforts; amending the A-F performance grading system to “paint a more accurate picture of the teaching and learning that happen daily;” returning control of school calendars to local boards of education, which is a power already granted to charters and “restart” schools; and enhancing state support for school district facilities to support public school capital projects, according an agenda released by I-SS.

The legislative breakfast was held at the Unity Center in Statesville.
