Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools

Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is one of two public schools systems in Orange County. The system is run by the CHCCS Board of Education, which is comprised of seven elected officials who hold four-year terms. Under the board is the superintendent. The current superintendent is Tom Forcella.

The district includes 11 elementary schools, four middle schools, four high schools, a middle college with Durham Technical Community College and a school for children at UNC Hospitals. These schools serve more than 12,000 students across Orange County.

Mold found on high school library books

Chapel Hill High School’s library books are moldy, but not because students aren’t reading them.

School staff discovered and reported that mold had grown on the spines of leather-bound books in the library.

New school, old ground

Last year, the CHCCS Board of Education decided to name the district’s 11th elementary after the historic segregated school. And for Northside alumni who experienced school segregation in Chapel Hill, the opening of the new school is a time to reflect.
