School Improvement

  • Below is the link to the Cove Creek School Improvement Plan (SIP). In accordance with Watauga County Schools Board of Education policy 3430, "School Improvement Plan," SIPs are developed by each school's School Improvement Team (SIT), which is composed of administration, classroom teachers, support staff, and parent representatives. SIPs encompass the goals of the North Carolina State Board of Education's Strategic Plan and are directly aligned to the goals of the Watauga County Schools Strategic Plan.

    More information about school improvement planning can be found on the Department of Public Instruction website at If you have questions about the school improvement planning process, please contact Principal Kelly Walker ( or Dr Wayne Eberle, Director of Accountability and School Improvement ( ).
