Welcome . . .

The Carteret County Public School System serves the students of Carteret County, a county located on the beautiful Crystal Coast of eastern North Carolina. From Cedar Point to Cedar Island there are 85 miles of beautiful coastal scenery, friendly towns, and 18 public schools that are committed to creating opportunities for all students to do their best and to succeed.

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope you find it informative and useful. In Carteret County, quality makes the difference.

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

Parent / Student Handbook

This year's Parent / Student handbook is now available online.

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.
