New Hanover County Schools Transition Fair

On October 26, 2011, the New Hanover County Schools Transition Advisory Team will sponsor a Transition Fair entitled, “WHATS NEXT IN YOUR LIFE”. This fair is for any student enrolled in grades 10-12 that is receiving some kind of special support services at school.

The goals of this event are to:

•Provide our students with entry level employment information about opportunities in the greater Wilmington area.
•Provide our students with Post-Secondary educational information and regional options.
•Provide our students with an opportunity to interact and ask questions of area service providers.

The WHATS NEXT IN YOUR LIFE, transition fair will begin promptly at 9:30 AM in the Dale K. Spencer Building and will conclude at 7:30 PM with a break from 2:30PM- 5:30 PM. The team anticipates that approximately 500 students will be in attendance.

If you would be interested in setting up a booth at the Dale K. Spencer building for the purpose of providing information to our students and answering questions about your business, please contact Betsy Stanwood by September 29th, 2011: email at or call at 910.254.4466.

Thank you for your support!

We are pleased to announce a new partnership between the UNCW Watson School of Education and Cape Fear Future to promote the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) for K-12 students.

Together, WSE and CFF have developed a website of STEM programs offered in the region. This resource provides a listing of camps, field trips, after-school programs, contests, learning resources, and places to visit for STEM-related activities. We hope the STEM Resource will help facilitate teacher/parent access to STEM programs and resources, and increase student participation in STEM programs.

Please visit the new site at:

We hope you will find the STEM Resource helpful, and help us share the link with teachers and parents in our region!
