EOG Results

Dear Parents,

On November 7, 2013, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction released the State’s 2012–2013 test results. These results have taken a little longer than expected since North Carolina adopted a new curriculum in 2012; the assessments and scoring had to be changed to reflect that. The State Board of Education adopted new standards because it wants all students to be on track for success in college and career when they graduate from high school.
