NCPS Growing Forward Together

What is a Demerger?

Demerging means separating a unified educational entity into distinct parts of a school system. This could involve dividing a large district into smaller ones with their administration, governance, and programs. Demerging aims to decentralize decision-making, improve efficiency, address educational needs, and create more manageable units. Careful planning and coordination are essential to ensure a smooth transition and maintain education quality for affected students.

Who Are We?

Our educational journey began in 1991 with the coexistence of Tarboro City Schools, Rocky Mount City Schools, Edgecombe County Schools, and Nash County Schools as distinct entities. The following year, in 1992, Rocky Mount City Schools merged with Nash County Schools, and some students from Edgecombe County Schools joined this consolidation, giving rise to the formation of Nash-Rocky Mount Schools. At that time, there were only two school districts: Nash-Rocky Mount Schools and Edgecombe County Schools.

Fast forward to 2020, Nash-Rocky Mount Schools underwent a transformative change, adopting the new name of Nash County Public Schools. For over three decades, from 1992-1993 to the 2023-2024 school year, Nash County Public Schools has resulted from this merger, catering to students from various backgrounds and communities.

Looking ahead, significant changes are on the horizon. Beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, part of the Rocky Mount students residing within the Edgecombe County line will be reassigned to Edgecombe County Schools. As a consequence, Nash County Public Schools will experience the restructuring of its district, leading to the transfer of four schools to Edgecombe County.

With a rich history of mergers and transformations, Nash County Public Schools has remained steadfast in its commitment to providing quality education to its students. As we continue Growing Forward Together, we are dedicated to embracing change and fostering an inclusive learning environment, ensuring the best possible educational experience for ALL students in the years to come.
