    Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools strives to create experiences that empower, inspire and engage all learners in every classroom, every day. 

    Secondary social studies instruction in CHCCS is supported at all levels by the district's commitment to providing vertically-aligned, thoughtfully developed, "living" curriculum. Understanding by Design units align to North Carolina's Essential Social Studies and Common Core History Literacy Standards and are developed with the intent of preparing all students for academic, college, career, and life success as readers, writers, speakers, and listeners. 


    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) provides social studies instructional resources for teachers and families. 


    Currently, the K-12 social studies standards are undergoing a revision cycle. This will impact high school social studies course sequencing beginning with students entering ninth grade in 2020-21. To get more information about his process and the changes, please go to the Standards Revision page on the NCDPI Social Studies Google Site
