Charlotte-Mecklenburg board of education wins national honors

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board was honored Saturday by a council of urban school officials from across the country.

The Council of Urban Boards of Education, representing more than 100 large school boards, named Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools its award of excellence winner at the council’s annual conference in San Antonio, Texas. The award recognizes gains in student achievement, including rising graduation rates and the board’s work in strategic planning and engaging the public.

This is the 10th year the council has given the award of excellence, and CMS is the first North Carolina district to be honored. Wake, Guilford, Durham and Cumberland county school boards are also members.

According to a council news release, judges chose CMS based on materials submitted by the school district, independent follow-up research and information provided by the N.C. School Boards Association.
