Introduction

Section 4156 of the one-time Public School Law of North Carolina read: "The County Superintendent shall not approve the final voucher for the salary of any principal or teacher until all reports have been made according to law and until the register has been properly filled out and filed with the County Superintendent of Schools." This collection represents those registers that were filled out and filed with Rowan County's Superintendent of Schools at the turn of the twentieth century.

Where the yearly summary is completed, one may find a student's grade, the number of days he or she was present and tardy, and the grade of average, above average, and below average listed. The yearly summary also states whether or not a child was promoted. A school census which is also sometimes completed, reveals the name of parents, siblings, sex and age of a child. For example, the 1918-1919 school register for District 5, Gold Hill Township (white) shows that Anna Taylor, age twelve, the daughter of R.A. Taylorwas in the fifth grade. She attended school 47 days and was tardy on five. SHe was promoted but the promotion was conditioned on her arithmetic skills improving. This register also notes that the school was closed the second week of the school year in December 1918 because "on account of the Influenza." The school resumed the third week for two days and then closed again for three days.

The registers are divided by school district and race and carry a copy of a teacher's contract, a school census of the district, the approved book list, rules and regulations, attendance sheets, as well as a yearly summary for each pupil. More often than not, the keepers of these registers filled out only the attendance record, although there are instances in which more detailed information is given.

The registers are arranged in alphabetical order by township (Atwell, China Grove, Cleveland, etc.) and within the township chronologically by district. The race of the school registers are noted.

These materials were stored at the Rowan County Register of Deeds office and was transferred to Rowan Public Library in the Spring of 1994.
