Material exchange should be done Mondays between 8:30am - 2:30pm or 3:15pm - 4:00pm. Please remember that remote learning materials returned to school will be graded and are used to count a student present for those days of school. Please keep track of work completion each week with your child to make sure the teacher will have grades and can mark them present each day.
We have recently implemented a new school notification system called SwiftK12. This notification system is loaded with new features that will make it easier for us to keep in contact with your family. To guarantee the notification system is used efficiently, we will need to confirm your contact information is accurate and up-to-date at all times.

Pocosin Innovative Charter
The mission of Pocosin Innovative Charter is to provide a high quality education preparing today’s
students for tomorrow’s world with a solid foundation to become respectful and productive citizens
focusing on regional agriculture and related industries.
PIC provides a unique educational choice for our community and for those families in counties adjacent to ours. We share a passion for providing our children with a rigorous curriculum designed to teach them life skills specific to our local history and culture, and to prepare them for life near home or far.
The educational focus of PIC is a thoughtful and purposeful standards-based program designed to provide the students with a creative, challenging, and student-centered learning environment while providing and integrating a solid foundation in the core subject areas with an agricultural focus and related industries.
Charter schools are public schools of choice that are authorized by the State Board of Education and operated by independent non-profit boards of directors. State and local tax dollars are the primary funding sources for charter schools, which have open enrollment and cannot discriminate in admissions, associate with any religion or religious group, or charge-tuition. Charter schools operate with freedom from many of the regulations that govern district schools, but charter schools are held accountable through the State assessment and accountability system.

At Pocosin Innovative Charter, we offer a balanced educational program that will use prescriptive, core curriculum to teach at every grade level with a full integration of agricultural curriculum that serves as over-arching theme. We integrate science in all content areas and help develop skills that are integral to our region's commerce and longevity.
Pocosin Innovative Charter encourages the use of different and innovative teaching methods. Teachers determine each student's individual learning style in order to develop the necessary relationships and modalities of teaching to benefit the learner. Teachers develop hands-on, project-based units that encourage in-depth thinking and analysis, and engage the learner in innovative ways to help them master grade-level content by enriching the core curriculum with projects that are directly tied to the students' community.
Our curriculum plans include a focus on agricultural sciences such as Smithsonian STC/ STCMS kits, Texas A&M Extension Junior Master Gardener curriculum, and 4-H program, where appropriate.
Our teachers are given access to resources, including support from the community, to use in the classroom. This includes subject matter experts, field excursions to farms, the paper mill, marinas, and museums. Our teachers are encouraged to bring as many units as possible to projects for the students including farming, commerce, marketing, veterinary care and more. These projects are tied to grade level standards and assessed using both formative and summative reports and portfolios.
