NC Session Law 2019-60 describes the term of repayment for Principal Fellows who work in traditional school settings or those identified as "high-need".
High-need schools are public schools that meet one or more of the following criteria:
a. Is a school identified under Part A of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended.
b. Is a persistently low-achieving school, as identified by the Department of Public Instruction for purposes of federal accountability.
c. A middle school containing any of grades five through eight that feeds into a high school with less than a seventy-five percent (75%) four-year cohort graduation rate.
d. A high school with less than a seventy-five percent (75%) four-year cohort graduation rate.
Note: The NCSEAA will make all final decisions regarding the term of a PF graduates service repayment through an employment verification process.
