    In September 2020, the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) offered the first “Nuestra Cocina” for CHCCS families and staff. The online event was in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, and it was designed by the Latinx members of OEI as they invited participants into their own kitchens to introduce them to authentic Hispanic cuisine as a way to honor a rich culture. More than 40 people attended the inaugural “Nuestra Cocina,” or “in our kitchen.”

  • CHCCS Salutes and Thanks Our School Social Workers

    One of the strengths and priorities within Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is the commitment to providing student support staff at many levels in every elementary, middle and high school. Each school is blessed with a full-time School Social Worker, a luxury few North Carolina districts can claim. The week of March 8-12 is our time to celebrate and honor the 23 School Social Workers who so often serve as the glue within a school community-- and at no time, has this been more evident than since the pandemic began.
