About WAKE Up and Read
The WAKE Up and Read campaign was launched in 2012 to address one of the most critical junctures to lifelong success, reading on grade-level by 3rd grade. This unique community collaboration includes education, civic, philanthropic, and business leaders from across Wake County, all working together to help every child develop the necessary skills for success in school and beyond. Our shared goal is to ensure that more children from low-income families have the tools and resources they need to become lifelong readers and learners. Working together, we can build stronger students and a stronger community. To learn more, visit www.wakeupandread.org

For parents: Understanding your student’s new report card
WCPSS uses standards-based grading for report cards. The purpose of the report card is to inform parents about a student’s performance on the grade level standards. All elementary students receive a report at the end of each nine-week reporting period.
The elementary report card provides one way for the teacher to communicate with the student and parent about the student's success in meeting the state standards for that grade and reporting on the student's classroom behavior and work habits.
A guide showing parents how to interpret the report cards is available by clicking here.

Important dates and information for the 2013-2014 school year
Schools were closed for inclement weather
(snow, icy roads) on
January 28, 29, and 30, 2014.
Make-up days are as follows:
February snow make-up means little change in schedule
Wake County school leaders have announced that makeup time for the school days missed due to inclement weather on February 12-14, 2014, will require only the cancellation of Early Release on Friday, March 7.
The district will be able to meet the required 1,025 hours of instruction, by keeping the make-up days already announced, changing the March 7 early release day to a full day, and using banked hours that are already in our scheduled days.
Deputy Superintendent Cathy Moore told board members, “Staff members, parents, and students provided feedback about exploring all options, which we did. We are glad to be able to exercise this option.”
