School Report Cards Welcome Letter (2020-2021)

  • Dear Community Stakeholders:

    Thank you for your interest in Cumberland County Schools (CCS). As the fifth largest school district in North Carolina, with more than 6,000 dedicated employees serving nearly 50,000 students at 89 schools, we are committed to providing a safe, positive and rigorous learning environment for every student.


    The North Carolina School Report Cards website provides a great deal of data related to various measures of achievement. Beyond using test scores and letter grades to measure the success of students and schools, we want to provide every student with equitable access to engaging learning that prepares them to be collaborative, competitive and successful in our global world. The 2020-2021 school year was filled with unprecedented trials and uncertainty, but that didn’t stop CCS from preparing lifelong learners to reach their maximum potential. 

    CCS is moving forward with The Cumberland Commitment: Strategic Plan 2024 and is making progress toward accomplishing goals set in all four priority areas. In order to continue moving forward as a school system, it will take a concerted effort to help our students thrive in the classroom and in life.

    After perusing the information on this site, I encourage you to learn more by talking with your child’s principal or visiting one of our 89 schools as a volunteer. Please visit the Community Engagement Opportunities website at to learn more about volunteer opportunities in CCS.

    Thank you for your continued support of Cumberland County Schools.
