WCPSS 10TH GRADE STUDENT SURVEY

The WCPSS 10th Grade Student Survey process is now underway for 2014.  The goal of this annual survey is to collect data on students' perceptions of the school environment so that schools can use the information for evaluative and planning purposes.  The surveys also allow WCPSS to examine these perceptions across the district as a whole.

 
10th grade students currently enrolled in English II have taken the survey during class on 3/21/14.  All other 10th graders not currently enrolled in English II should access the survey between now and May 9th.  This survey link will be accessible until Friday, May 16th.  The 29 question survey should take each student about 5-10 minutes to complete.  Students can access the link from home or visit the media center before school, during lunch, or afterschool to complete the survey.

JOSTENS ORDER!

Junior and Senior students and parents, if you were unable to place your order for class rings, graduation announcements, or cap and gowns when Jostens was on our campus to take orders, you still have time to place an order.  You can mail your order into Jostens at the address on your order form or orders may be placed online at www.trianglegrad.com.

2013-2014 WCPSS STUDENT ISSUED EMAIL

 
Beginning 2013-2014 school year, all WCPSS students must use WCPSS provided e-mail accounts for student to teacher e-mail communication. There are a number of reasons why Wake County and other peer districts assign student email; a few of the reasons are: 

* Students under the age of 13 are not legally allowed to create e-mail accounts with most major providers such as Google and Hotmail. 
* Complies with Board Policy 2313, R&P 2313 and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). 
* Provides transparent communication between students and teachers. 
* Allows intervention and investigations into e-mail harassment and/or cyber bullying. 
* Honors Parent request to deny student e-mail. 
* Teachers no longer required to keep up with a student's ever changing personal e-mail address.
