My interest in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools isn’t just professional. It’s personal, too — my 9-year-old daughter, Katie, is a fourth-grader at Beverly Woods Elementary. It’s important to me and to my wife that our daughter does well in school so she can have a full, productive life as an adult.

Parent Involvement = Student Success

The 2007-08 school year will be an exciting one for CMS. The district will shift to learning communities as part of our decentralization, and we will begin to put into place some new programs designed to boost student achievement. All of these programs are important ones, and we think they’ll help students learn. But our biggest asset in helping CMS raise student achievement is you — the parents of our students.
