Family & Community Information


From time to time, disagreements between families and school may occur regarding the development and implementation of a student's individualized education program (IEP).  It is highly recommended that the following steps be considered in order to resolved differences quickly.

  1. ADDRESS AT CLASSROOM LEVEL - First- Talk to your child's teacher about your concerns
  2. ADDRESS AT SCHOOL LEVEL - Second - Talk to the Principal at your child's school about your concerns
  3. ADDRESS AT LEA/PSU LEVEL - If you still have concerns, contact the EC Director's Office of your school district


Welcome! We are happy you are interested in our school system. Carteret County Public School District is committed to creating inclusive school settings for all students. It is expected in most instances that a student with disabilities can be educated in the school he/she would attend if not disabled, and in a general education classroom at least part of the day, with appropriate modifications and accommodations. When it is determined that a student's needs cannot be met in his/her home school and a more restrictive environment is necessary, Carteret County School System does have a continuum of services to meet those significant needs.
