Streater Resigns From Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board Of Education


Chapel Hill, NC – Annetta Stokes Streater, who has served on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education since 2006, has submitted her letter of resignation. Her last board meeting will be on Monday, September 18, 2017.

“I have had the honor and privilege of serving the children and staff of this district for the past 11 years – and what a rewarding commitment it has been,” said Streater. “At this juncture in my life, I find it necessary to be responsive to increasing family and work commitments. I’m confident the Board and administration will continue on this path of improving instruction and operations with a student-centered approach through an equity lens.”

During her time on the Board, three new schools were constructed and several others have been renovated. Her support of the district’s sustainability efforts resulted in two of the schools receiving Platinum and Silver LEED certifications. Both the dual language Spanish and Mandarin programs were expanded, including the district’s first magnet school, Frank Porter Graham Bilingue Elementary. Specialty academies were created at the high schools, and the district’s alternative school received its designation as a high school.

Most recently she voted to add specific language to the Board’s bullying policy that specifically bans the display of the Confederate flag and other threatening symbols from our campuses.

“I hope our community has benefited from their decision to elect me as a Board member,” said Streater. “I will certainly miss the work, including the passionate dialogue that goes into overseeing our public schools. But you’ll see me in other arenas continuing to advocate for high quality education.”

“Ms. Streater has been a tremendous asset to our school district and our community,” said Board Chair James Barrett.

“She has worked tirelessly for the benefit of students and families. We are all grateful for the opportunity to have served with her in this important work.”
