    Superintendent's Message


    Dear Parents & Students,


    On behalf of the Gates County Schools Board of Education, I want to personally welcome you back for another exciting school year! Our educators are the very best in North Carolina. Our professioanls have been engaged in learning on their own all summer, attending trainings, reviewing student growth and achievement data, and making plans to engage your students like never before in the classroom.  

    A successful student is an individual who is able to experience a high degree of success in a variety of challenging academic and social endeavors, kindergarten through twelfth grade. A successful student is also an individual who matures into a responsible citizen, a productive member of society, a person with impeccable character, and one who adds a great deal of value to the community. As superintendent, it is my direct responsibility to ensure our school district provides this type of challenging and appropriate educational program. Just a few notes of interest …


    • Board Chairman Ray Felton has provided newsletters (see webpage) about the exciting construction progress of the middle school. We have moved extremely well with the renovation and new construction of the school and we want to share where we are in the process to date
    • We are committed to making improvements to our system that help us provide equity and more opportunities for our students.
    • Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) have provided additional time for teachers to meet the needs of the students they serve, and our students are already reaping the benefits.
    • We have new technology devices with drones, spheros, oculus rift, Mindstorms and Lego robotics to enhance enrichment activities for learning.
    • We continue to refine, explore and expand academically rigorous pathways aligned to NC Academic Standards and community standards with a focus on innovative teaching and learning. 
    • It is my goal to continue to expand our current offerings into a true Early College Program. The establishment of the program will enable a larger percentage of students to achieve at high levels and complete college course work while in high school. 
    • And many more exciting fun and exciting opportunities and innovative challenges


    It is an exciting time to be in North Carolina, and it is my great honor to serve as your superintendent. Gates County Public Schools is family; there is no better place in which to learn and work. Thank you for your continued support as we strive to do our very best for our community’s children. They deserve it, and we simply cannot do this important work without you.


    Excited to Learn,

    Dr. Barry Williams & The Board of Education
