Message from Dr. Eric Cunningham, Superintendent of Halifax County Schools
I am pleased that Halifax County Schools is no longer considered a low performing district, and I would like to commend former superintendent, Dr. Elease Frederick, and her leadership team for moving the district forward. At the same time, I recognize there is much work to do and continuous improvement is my focus. I look forward to seeing the students of Halifax County Schools progress academically, and I embrace the work that it takes to continue our upward progression.
