Parent involvement is extremely important to the success of our students. Columbus County Schools views parents as important partners with a needed voice to help guide our decisions for the betterment of our children’s education. We will always encourage parents to voice concerns, be an advocate for their child, and help shape the direction of our school and district.

Recently, a new law was passed (North Carolina General Statute § 115C-76.25) that puts many of our initiatives in writing, and helps parents understand their rights and how they can be more involved in their child’s education. We are excited that this new law recognizes the many opportunities that parents have for meaningful involvement. As you see below, all of these rights have been in our Board Policies for many years, but we now want to remind parents of these rights, and encourage parents to become actively engaged in the many positive changes happening in our schools. The full list of rights is attached here-…/2PACX…/pub


Columbus County Schools has created a FREE application that allows parents to track their child’s bus. The app is available NOW! During this first phase the app may not have full functionality for all users… If you have any issues or questions, please fill out this form. Parents will need to know their child’s Student ID number. Schools are sending home information next week with all the information needed. If you know your child’s ID number, you can sign up NOW!

Please note –

1) This app tracks the BUS not individual children.
2) Your home will show “not arrived” if the bus does not stop and open the door (for example if the child is not at the road)
