Interested individuals should file a written and signed notification of interest, using a form which may be downloaded from the Roanoke Rapids Graded School District’s website at www.rrgsd.org (located in the documents sections of the website) or picked up from our Central Services office at 536 Hamilton Street, Roanoke Rapids, N.C.  The completed form should be submitted to Mr. Jay Carlisle, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, at Central Services no later than 4:00 p.m. on July 18, 2019.  The notification of interest must contain a statement that the individual is eligible for and willing to fill the vacancy.  In addition, the notification of interest should contain additional information regarding your qualifications for and interest in the office.
