RCS Important Updates

Statement Regarding Moss Street Partnership School

After extensive deliberation, UNC Greensboro and the Rockingham County Schools Board of

Education have agreed not to pursue renewal of the Memorandum of Agreement and lease for the

Moss Street Partnership School (MSPS). The mutual decision was made in part to address capacity

constraints within Rockingham County elementary schools and to accommodate the Board of

Education’s desire to maximize the utilization of current facilities and resources. MSPS will

continue educational operations for the remainder of the academic year ending June 30, 2023.


To comply with legislation passed by the North Carolina General Assembly, UNCG collaborated with

Rockingham County Schools and the Moss Street community to launch MSPS — one of nine UNC

System Lab Schools that were opened to provide enhanced educational programs to students in

low-performing schools and to provide a unique training ground and innovation space for future

teachers and school administrators.


“We are proud of the work and progress being made by MSPS teachers, administrators, and

volunteers,” said UNCG Dean of the School of Education Randy Penfield. “Though Rockingham

County Schools and UNCG will not be renewing our partnership at MSPS, we share many joint

programs and initiatives and look forward to continued collaboration.”


“We highly value our partnership with UNCG. Our history of working together is characterized by

flexibility, commitment to excellence, and a student-first mindset,” said Rockingham County Schools

Superintendent John “Shawn” Stover. “This transition of the MSPS back to RCS is another example

of this spirit of cooperation that characterizes our partnership. We look forward to working with

UNCG to ensure a smooth transition that builds upon the base they have established.”


UNCG and the Rockingham County Schools Board of Education are working together on an orderly

and amicable transition plan that prioritizes students and teachers. Details related to the progress

of the transition will be communicated transparently with our constituents and stakeholders as

they become available.

Please use the form linked below to submit questions and feedback about the transition of Moss Street Partnership School effective July 1, 2023. All questions submitted will be reviewed by both UNC-Greensboro and Rockingham County Schools personnel. Responses will be added to the joint FAQ document as questions are received.

Literacy at Home: Digital Children's Reading Initiative

In order to provide continuing support for North Carolina’s youngest readers, The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Office of Early Learning has developed and released “Literacy at Home.” This digital resource provides literacy activities at each grade level, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. Families and communities may access this resource for activities that specifically target the literacy skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and oral language. When children grow in each of these foundational areas they are well on their way to becoming proficient readers.

Below are a list of resources for the NCDPI's "Literacy at Home" Digital Children's Reading Initiative:
