Device Distribution

PLEASE NOTE: If a student has an older laptop with the years 14-15 or 15-16 engraved on the front, those computers are not compatible with Canvas and will have to be exchanged at the school.  Call 910-484-8121 for information on how to make an exchange.

Families may continue completing the technology needs survey to request a device for their child. The district is asking all families with a student in grades K-12 to complete the survey indicating device needs for each student. The survey, which can be found here: CCS Device Requests, will remain open through the first week of school. Survey responses will help district and school staff better understand the needs of students. Future device deployment opportunities will be organized and shared by individual schools.

Although the district intends to provide a device for every student in the future, some families may choose to provide their own device at this time. Families that elect to use a personal device for their child will have another opportunity to receive a school system Chromebook once students physically return to school buildings.

Image of Cumberland County Schools Student Services logoDuring a typical school day, CCS students have access to a variety of Student Services professionals (counselors, social workers, psychologists, nurses) and military-connected resources such as the Military Family and Youth Liaison, Military Student Transition Counselors, and Military Family Life Counselors. This staff assists students with social-emotional concerns. CCS anticipates that some students may experience difficulty as a result of anxiety or stress related to the illness or school closure.

Cumberland County Schools now has a Student Services Hotline. This phone number should only be used by CCS students. For an emergency, call 9-1-1. If a student has concerns about anxiety, depression, abuse, suicidal thoughts, or has no food, etc. a student should dial 910-475-1950.  A CCS counselor or social worker will be available Monday through Friday.

Updated SAT Information from College Board

We’re working to ensure that students will have opportunities to take the SAT® to make up for this spring’s lost administrations. Today we’re sharing with you that we’ve added a new SAT administration for Saturday, September 26, 2020. This date will be for the SAT only, in the United States and internationally, with no SAT Subject Tests™ available. Sunday testing for religious reasons will be on September 27.

Registration for the 2020-2021 SAT administrations will open the week of May 26.  At that point, June registrants will be able to transfer their seat to a 2020-2021 administration. All other students in the high school class of 2021 who don’t have SAT scores will also have early access to register for the August, September, and October administrations. This includes students who had registered for March or May and had their registrations canceled and refunded. For each administration this year, we’re also preparing to significantly expand our capacity.

Please visit the following website for more and complete information.   UPDATED SAT and PSAT Website
