Students, parents, and community members will find useful links to all types of important information from the links below and the pages on the left.

Parent Concerns Regarding Students
Moore County Schools understands that there are times when parents may have concerns that they feel should be addressed at the Central Office level. If a parent has a concern regarding a teacher that remains unresolved after a parent-teacher conference, it will be necessary to speak with the Principal or send an email.  Please refer to the Policy 1740/4010 for Student Grievances. 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.
