FAST NC To Aid Students, Schools Affected By Florence

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Hurricane Florence caused more than 1.2 million students in North Carolina’s schools to miss class time.

For some it might have been just a day or two. For others it could be weeks before their school reopens.

This week, a bipartisan group of current and former education leaders came together in Raleigh to announce the creation of FAST NC, an unprecedented effort to aid students and educators affected by the storm.

FAST NC will work with local superintendents, charter school directors, and statewide associations to identify needs and direct funding.

More details about the initiative — and how you can help — can be found online at ncnn.com or at ncpublicschools.gov/fastnc.
