State of the Schools
Wake County students at every grade span made academic gains in 2011-12, according to newly released results from the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. In addition to district-wide increases in proficiency, Economically Disadvantaged students in Wake County demonstrated the highest levels of proficiency in math and reading that they have achieved under the state's current testing model. Non-Economically Disadvantaged students showed impressive gains, as well.

- Student Accident Insurance
Our school district has selected the Student Insurance Plan from K&K Insurance Group to make
reliable coverage available to parents. If you don't have other insurance, this plan may be a resource to
consider. Additionally, even if you have other coverage, this plan can help fill expensive "gaps" caused by
deductible and co-pays. Coverage may be purchased at any time during the school year by visiting
The SPAN system is designed to give students and parents at WCPSS schools up-to-the-minute access to their electronic records, including schedules, attendance, and grades. Parents and students will be able to view academic progress reports online, and students will be able to complete course requests online for high school.
Parents may register by completing the SPAN application. This form MUST be submitted to the main office along with a photo ID. We are unable to accept these form from students. Once the account has been created, you will receive an email with instructions on how to activate your account.
WCPSS takes all measures to keep student data secure. Student data is not accessible by anyone who does not have the authority to do so as defined by the U.S. Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). If there is a situation where a parent or legal guardian should not receive access to student data, please notify the school immediately. Parents/guardians will have the ability to see who else has access to their student's data. E-mail addresses provided to WCPSS as part of the SPAN registration process will not be shared with anyone outside the school system. Inquiries and login problems can be addressed by e-mailing email@example.com.
