Teachers from Estes Hills Elementary brought a little bit of school to the homes of their students during their last workday.
On Nov. 8, families from across Durham County will flock to the campus of Southern School of Energy and Sustainability to learn about the innovative alternatives for learning offered by the Durham Public Schools Magnet Program. The DPS Magnet and CTE Pathway Fair is your opportunity to explore our elementary, middle, secondary and high school offerings and discover whether one of them is ideal for your child.
Jasmine Cousar is well-liked by her peers at J.D. Clement Early College High School and has earned the respect of her teachers and school leaders.
Last month in the DPS Corner, we shared some tips from our principals on how best parents can support their children throughout the school year. This month, we’d like to turn the spotlight back on principals for a moment and thank them for being so indispensable to Durham Public Schools. Why? Because this October is National Principals Month, and we hope you’ll join us in celebrating their contributions to our schools.

Special to The Herald-Sun
We have a lot of work to do to bring Durham Public Schools and each of our 33,750 students to their fullest potential. There are examples of greatness and innovation across our entire county: students acing Advanced Placement courses, children bent over laptops and tablets in one-to-one technology environments, and elementary children learning Mandarin Chinese or working in Montessori classrooms. What our school district needs to achieve — and will achieve — is consistent excellence in every classroom on every campus.
