With a diverse economy, an emphasis on technology and a superior quality of life, North Carolina has become one of the fastest growing states in the country. In fact, it has become routine to see our state's communities and regions rated among the nation's most attractive in terms of the overall "quality of life" they offer.

North Carolina continues to see its population grow at a rapid pace, with new residents lured by the beauty of our land and its recreational amenities, by jobs in our high-tech industries, by the exceptional services provided by our healthcare facilities, and by the caliber of our educational resources. We hope you can become one of them - and excel with us as a valued professional in North Carolina's public-education community. North Carolina is home to 115 school systems, 100 of which are county units and 15 of which are city units, and over 150 charter schools.
