Statement from Communities In Schools on Appointment of New Achievement School District Superintendent 

I came to North Carolina because of my passion for students and ensuring success for each one regardless of their background or the barriers they face. During my time at Communities In Schools, we have worked to reach students in poverty, students in rural and urban communities and students in non-traditional school settings with innovative wraparound supports. I look forward to taking my passion to DPI to build innovative solutions to education that bring communities together and propel students forward.

Four years ago, we hired a great change agent to lead our team at Communities In Schools of North Carolina. Eric Hall came in, learned about our students, our state and our communities. He built a vision for amplifying the success of students in poverty and students struggling to achieve their potential. We are delighted that the State Board of Education recognizes his leadership and has invited him to take on a new opportunity. Communities In Schools of North Carolina is strong, and has a great staff leadership team focused on ensuring that students receive the wraparound supports they need to be successful. We wish Eric well, and we look forward to continuing the robust work already taking place in partnership with school districts, partners, and funders.
