Funding of Public Education

Rowan County schools continue to be the largest single recipient of county funds, over 1/3 of our total budget, which positively impacts students in the Rowan-Salisbury, Kannapolis City Schools, and Rowan Academy (a charter school) in the Rowan County area. 

Special Allocation of Funds

In addition to this high level of ongoing financial support, the Rowan County Board of Commissioners established a special allocation of funds to be used specifically for classroom supplies. By placing the money in the hands of teachers, it enables them to acquire the necessary resources to better instruct our children.
