To provide safe and engaging learning environments that prepare students for their tomorrow.

Our students will become successful, responsible citizens in an ever-changing global society.

Each student enrolled in Buncombe County Schools is following an educational path that is unique and special. This path to the future in a diverse and global society is filled with choices and experiences. Instructional Services aim to support each student to handle every twist and turn of his or her educational journey. Our goal is to support every student on his or her pathway to success.

Curriculum & Instruction supports core academic and enrichment programs designed to provide innovative learning experiences for students both inside and outside of the classroom. Each academic area is led by a curriculum specialist. Please contact the curriculum specialist for further information.
