NC School Report Card Welcome Letter

    • NC School Report Card Welcome Letter

      Dear Parents and Guardians:

      Chatham County Schools is pleased to share information about your child’s school based on data from the 2022-2023 academic year. The North Carolina School Report Card, generated by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, offers a range of information about individual schools and the district as a whole.

      The online report card is interactive, giving parents a variety of options for reviewing data results. If, for instance, you would like to see how a particular population fared at an individual school, you will have the tools to access that data. Additionally, the report card will include Read to Achieve results, and a variety of information about college readiness (ACT scores, WorkKeys data, and college success rates for individual schools). These data points aim to provide a deeper understanding of the standards that are essential to student success upon graduation from high school. Holding students to these standards will enable us to prepare a generation that is college and workforce ready.

      Please be assured that Chatham County Schools currently has and will continue to develop and implement a multitude of programs that are designed to support students, enhance instruction, and increase positive outcomes for our students. As you can see from this year’s report card, we are a very competitive school district.

    • Chatham outperforms the state in virtually every grade level and subject. Specifically, Chatham had the following areas of success:

      • 78.9% of our schools met or exceeded growth

      • 100% of K-8 schools met or exceeded growth

    • 100% of Elementary schools met or exceeded growth

    • 84.2% of CCS schools earned a School Performance Grade of C or better

    • 63% Increased overall performance composite

    • We are ranked 26th when compared to all 115 districts in North Carolina for overall proficiency composite for all subjects

    • 78.9% of CCS schools exceeded the state’s overall performance composite growth

    • CCS outperformed the state in every measure across grades K-8

    • CCS outperformed the state in Math 1, Biology, ACT, WorkKeys, the percent of 12th grade students that have passed a Math 3 course, and the 4-year graduation rate

    • CCS overall proficiency composite was 4 points above the state’s overall proficiency by almost 5% points

    • We are third in our North Central Region when comparing overall proficiency composite for all subjects

    • Chatham County’s 4-year Graduation rate increased by 3% which is above the state’s 4-year graduation rate by 2.6%

    • Chatham County had 2 schools move out of low-performing status and one school that moved from a C letter grade to a B letter grade

    • Chatham Early College continues to be a A level school 

    • The percent of students that scored above a 19 on the ACT composite was over 10% points higher than the state average. CCS also ranked 11th in the state out of 115 districts.


    I am proud of how well Chatham County Schools students and staff did this past year. There is always room for improvement, but in the context of how districts across the state fared, it really reflects how hard the members of the CCS family worked to ensure our students were learning and growing academically.

    The report card does not fully reflect all of the excellent educational experiences taking place daily in Chatham County Schools. We will continue to assess our efforts and identify opportunities for improvement. If you have any feedback or ideas, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s principal. As always, thank you for your support.
