Pender County has approximately 300 students who have a parent serving active military duty. Students attend all 16 district schools and have parents in all branches of the armed forces. The district partners with local bases to provide services to students whose parents are serving active military duty.
Each year, the district does a Federally Connected Survey near the start of school to identify students whose parents serve active duty. The survey helps schools offer maximum services to these students and also helps the district apply for additional funding.
