Vance County School Superintendent Surveys

As the Vance County Board of Education works to recruit and hire a new superintendent, board members would like direct input from interested members of the community.

Community members may access and complete the survey through the attached link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GLPRQ7X

The community survey also is available on the school system’s website at www.vcs.k12.nc.us under “News & Announcements” on the homepage.

Please note that the survey must be completed in a single online session, as partial responses cannot be saved for later completion. Also, please note that the survey may only be completed one time per IP address.

Hard copies of the community survey will be available at the central office, community centers, libraries, and/or as advertised through local news media.
