Parent Concerns Regarding Students
Moore County Schools understands that there are times when parents may have a concern that they feel should be addressed at the Central Office level. After first talking with the teacher and principal about their concern, if a parent feels it necessary to contact a Central Office administrator, they may contact the Office for Student Support Services at 910.947.2976. The Office of Student Support Services serves as the primary point of contact for all parent concerns related to students.
