CCPS Education Happenings


The Carteret County Board of Education members are reviewing the possibility of adjusting the attendance line between Croatan High School and West Carteret High School. This possibility would be to move the line west to the junction of Highway 24 and Hibbs Road effective June 12, 2017. This would also impact middle school students living in that area, moving them from Broad Creek Middle School to Newport Middle School. Two community meetings have taken place. Board members welcome comments about this possibility. Those comments may be emailed to enrollmentbalance@carteretk12.org. Comments may also be shared at the November 1, 2016, Board of Education meeting, which begins promptly at 6pm. The presentation explaining this possible attendance line change may be found below:

PowerSchool Mobile App

Ever wonder what your child is doing in school?  How did he do on that test at school today?  Was she counted present today?

Well you can access this information and much more with the PowerSchool Mobile App.  You can signup for all of your children under one account.  You can also receive real-time push updates anytime a grade or attendance is updated.  Check out the PowerSchool Mobile site for more information.  This is available for Apple and Android devices.

You can also access the same information through your computer, by accessing https://carteret.powerschool.com/public/

If you have never setup a parent account, there are just a few security steps to verify parental status and get you access:

1.  Complete the Parental Request Form for Access and send in with your child or deliver to your school office. (One is needed for each child, if at different schools.) 

2.  Stop by the school and show your state-issued picture ID.  (You must be a parent or legal guardian to receive access.)

3.  Your school will issue you a sheet similar to the one linked HERE.

4.  Go to a computer with internet access and complete the Parent Portal Instructions.

Our Mission:

The mission of Carteret County Schools is to graduate all students prepared to be productive citizens.
