CHCCS About Community Relations

      • The Public Information Office serves as the communication link between the district and the families whose children attend our schools.

        The staff issues regular press releases to local media about district events, publishes news articles, designs special publications and calendars, schedules Blackboard Connect calls to remind parents of key district activities, maintains the content on the district website and our social media sites, and sends regular news updates to employees and the community through its mailing lists.
        The staff also helps to coordinate crisis communication during inclement weather or school safety situations.

      • For the 15th Year, the Public School Foundation and East Rotary Provide School Supplies to Teachers

        For 15 years, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Public School Foundation and East Chapel Hill Rotary Club have partnered to kick off the school year by hosting a supply store with much needed school supplies for teachers. The past two years have brought many challenges as the event has been reconfigured as COVID-safe. But on the morning of August 19, a team of PSF and Rotary members and community volunteers carried out the annual event of giving school supplies to grateful teachers across the district.

      • Chapel Hill HS "Proconian" Publishes PSF-Funded Series

        A 2019 Public School Foundation grant awarded to Chapel Hill High School journalism teacher, Stephen Head, serves as a perfect example of the flexibility required for so many projects impacted by the pandemic. Head wrote the grant application to bring in a professional journalist as a guest teacher, with the goal of writing a series of "Proconian" stories about the lives of the workers constructing the new buildings at CHHS. More than 18 months after the original project was funded, the series, “Covid-19 Stories,” became one about how the coronavirus pandemic affected various individuals.

      • Newcomer/EL Teachers at Carrboro HS Form Dynamic Team

        “I’m the type of person who would like to stand in an airport all day long and ask people where they’re going, where they’re from and their culture. And I get to spend all day long with people from other countries and cultures,” said Carrboro High School Newcomer Teacher, Angela McChesney, one of two 2021 CHCCS Honor Teachers recently recognized. Her commitment to English learning students and families at CHS has become legendary, but she always emphasizes that credit must be shared across the team of four Newcomer/EL teachers -- Jackie van Hoewyk, Zach Fehst, Bonnie Carmen and herself.
