Southwest Chatham Internet Expansion Community Meeting Slated on September 25
Randolph Telephone has asked Chatham County to help get out the word about its interest in expanding its broadband coverage in southwestern parts of the county where there is little or no broadband service.  Residents are invited to attend a community meeting on Sept. 25, 2014, at 6:30 pm at Chatham Central High School’s cafeteria to learn more.
 
“We have heard from so many residents, farmers and small businesses in this part of the county that they badly need broadband, so we felt that it was important for us to let people in that area know about this meeting,” said Commissioner Chairman Walter Petty, who lives in that area.
 
According to Stephanie Gee, Marketing Director with Randolph Telephone, interest demonstrated by residents and businesses in this area at the meeting will determine how much Randolph Telephone can expand its services. “There is not a lot of grant money out there right now, so we need an idea of potential customers.”

100% of Chatham County Schools Meet or Exceed Achievement Growth Expectations
check imageThe State Board of Education has released accountability data for the 2013-2014 school year. The test scores reveal that all 17 of the district’s schools met or exceeded growth expectations. Eight schools met growth, and nine exceeded growth. Progress toward achieving growth is based on the federally required Annual Measureable Objectives (AMOs) for English Language Arts/Reading, Mathematics and Science in grades 3-8 and English II, Biology, Math I, Cohort Graduation, Attendance, ACT, and WorkKeys in grades 9-12.

Chatham County Schools also out-performed North Carolina composites in the areas of reading and math in grades 3-8. In addition, our district out-performed North Carolina results in Math I, Biology, English II and on composite scores for the ACT and WorkKeys. Three out of four Chatham County high schools exceeded the state 4-year graduation rate and all four high schools exceeded the 5-year graduation rate.
