North Carolina Competency-Based Education Partnership

The North Carolina Competency-Based Education (NC CBE) Partnership focuses on sharing and discussing evidence-based practices related to the design and implementation of competency-based education (CBE). Each of the partner schools and districts have begun implementing CBE and the partnership will provide a community of practice for them to share ideas and lessons learned from the implementation process. As schools move toward full implementation of CBE, they can serve as models of practice for others.

Partner organizations: North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI), Cherokee County Schools (CCS), Granville County Public Schools (GCPS), Johnston County Virtual Academy (JCVA), Morgan Elementary School, North Edgecombe High School, Northeast Academy of Aerospace and Advanced Technologies (NEAAAT)

The North Carolina Competency-Based Education (NC CBE) school coaching work will focus on supporting two high schools in North Carolina (Northeast Academy of Aerospace and Advanced Technologies and North Edgecombe High School) with their CBE implementation. The short-term goals for the schools focus on clarifying vision and creating a roadmap and/or strategic plan for scaling or expanding CBE related practices. Once there is a clear vision and plan in place, the medium-term goals focus on building capacity and creating champions for the CBE work within the school and with families and community members connected to the schools. Achieving the medium-term goals will involve providing coaching support on specific CBE topics and supporting the development of communication plans and stakeholder engagements to share the progress of the work and the benefits for all students. Both schools will participate in the NC CBE partnership and will share ideas as well as learn from other educators across North Carolina who are interested and/or already engaged in some level of CBE implementation.
