The North Carolina Council for the Social Studies has been supporting NC social studies educators for over 60 years.  We are a member supported organization – our members are K-12 teachers and administrators, college professors, pre-service and retired teachers and educators from non-profit organizations.

NCCSS is an affiliate of the National Council for the Social Studies – together we  work to open doors to quality curriculum resources, sound instructional practices, legislative advocacy and collaborative opportunities.
