Our Culture, Diversity & Equity
Cabarrus County Schools works to ensure through professional development, recruitment, retention, mentoring, teacher working conditions surveys, national board certification and other effective strategies, that low income and minority students are not taught at higher rates than other students by inexperienced, unqualified or out-of-field teachers.
The Cabarrus County Schools Human Resources Department staff will support the district mission by delivering superior customer service through recruitment, support and retention of a diverse and highly qualified workforce.
Our school system is known for having high expectations for our students and the belief that our students will and can achieve great things in the classroom and in life. But we’re raising the bar, each and every day, because we believe in pushing our students just a little more than what they believe they can achieve. Simultaneous to teaching them is helping them believe in themselves. By striking a balance, we’re making sure our students know they are supported while we raise their individual and collective bars. We want them to know and reach for their potential. At CCS, we challenge our students not to settle for average on any given day.
