ECPPS Board of Education Announces Personnel Changes

The Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County Board of Education would like to announce that we and Dr. Larry Cartner have mutually agreed to the terms of Dr. Cartner's voluntary resignation and transition from his role as superintendent of the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools. The resignation is effective September 30, 2018. Dr. Cartner may take leave until that date, but will be available to consult with the Board as needed. We would like to thank him for his service to the Board of Education, to Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools, and to our community.

As we move into the 2018-19 school year, we would like to assure our students, their parents, and our professional staff members that Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools will continue its operations as we transition into a school year that promises to be challenging, exciting, and rewarding. Our mission continues to be one that puts our students first as we all work toward preparing them to be highly effective, productive citizens in a global society. The Board of Education is committed to continuing the positive progress that has been made, and we are fully dedicated to serving our community in a civic, professional, and transparent manner as we work through the process of attaining and maintaining the highest ethical standards. With that in mind, we have unanimously decided to name Dr. Joanne Sanders as the Acting Superintendent for Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Public Schools, effective immediately and until further notice.
