Our district has nine learning communities each led by a learning community superintendent.
The learning communities are linked and include Central, East, North, Northeast, Northwest, South, Southeast, Southwest and West.
Schools in the learning communities are aligned to increase instructional leadership support evenly throughout the district. The structure of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools learning communities is intended to better support high schools and schools that feed into them.
Organizing our learning communities in this way allows many of our students to be in the same learning community from kindergarten until graduation from high school. Such stability helps students to achieve at high levels and graduate on time.
These learning communities are based on a district-wide commitment to three key beliefs.
