Senate Bill 49 - Parents' Bill of Rights Information

Greetings, Parents, Guardians and Families!

We are very excited about the opening of the 2023-24 school year and look forward to welcoming all of our students to school on Monday, Aug. 28, 2023!  As discussed in our last Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education meeting, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is committed to honoring the rights of parents and families in promoting involvement in our district. We recognize the fundamental rights of parents  and families to direct the upbringing, education and care of their minor children.  Therefore, we have created a webpage dedicated to Senate Bill 49: Parents’ Bill of Rights.  We welcome you to visit the page to learn more about how to be informed and engaged in your child’s education.  Please note that the webpage is under construction and will continue to be updated to centralize all  you need to support your child’s education. 


On August 15, 2023, the North Carolina legislature passed the Parents' Bill of Rights. To better serve our families, CMS has created this dedicated webpage that includes information, forms and resources that will help parents/guardians access information, request information, report concerns or submit objections, opt in for- and receive notification about specific things as it relates to their child(ren) who attend our schools.Please complete the student information form and review the Website.  See link below. Student Information form- Please complete it by September 11th.

Thank you for your support and partnership! 

Thank you,

Dr. Andrea Foggie, Principal
