Curriculum and Instruction
The Elementary and Secondary Schools Academic Support team will partner with our schools to ensure that students have complete access to academic resources, ongoing support, and instructional assistance.
Together, with the work and effort from our students, we will ensure a successful elementary, middle, and high school experience. A successful education experience will also ensure that our students are prepared for high school graduation, college acceptance, scholarships, trade school certifications, and military enlistment.

CDM Information for Parents
CREDIT BY DEMONSTRATED MASTERY (CDM) is the process by which a student may earn credit for a high school (HS) course by demonstrating deep understanding of the content, without course enrollment or seat time. This process was established to personalize learning for students and to respond to the needs of students, families, the Academic and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) community, school personnel, and leadership. CDM is available for any NC Public School student. Before initiating this process, students and parents must meet with the School Counselor. During the summer months, Central Office faculty will perform this duty. CDM is open across all content areas, including CTE, for standard level HS courses in grades 9-12 (and HS courses offered for 6-8 grade Middle School students). Only courses offered within ECPPS are eligible for CDM. Excluded courses include: CPR, Healthful Living and PE, English Language (EL), Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Honors, Occupational Course of Study (OCS), and Occupational Preparation I-IV courses. In addition, Career Technical Education (CTE) work-based learning courses – co-op, internship, apprenticeship; CTE courses that have a clinical setting as a requirement – Pro Start, Early Childhood Education I and II, Nursing Fundamentals, and CTE Advanced Studies courses are exempt from CDM.
Note that testing windows for non-state assessments are determined locally and can be administered at any time.
