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.”

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:
