Currituck County High School
Currituck County High School welcomes Dr. Brian Matney as principal for the 2018-19 school year. Dr. Matney comes to Currituck County High School with over 25 years of administrative experience. Most recently, Dr. Matney served as the Director of Secondary Education for Mecklenburg County Public Schools in Virginia. Prior to that position, Dr. Matney served as principal at both Landstown High School and Cox High School in Virginia Beach.
During his career, Dr. Matney’s accomplishments include being named the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Principal of the Year (2006), bringing a Governor’s STEM Academy to Landstown High School (only the 2nd one to be housed within a traditional high school in VA), and certifying as a lead evaluator with Advance ED to assist schools with the accreditation process.
Currituck County Middle School
Mrs. Michelle Cowan has been named principal of Currituck County Middle School. Mrs. Cowan is entering her 17th year as an educator and brings a wealth of knowledge and experiences to her role as Principal. As a military wife, she has had the opportunity to live and work many places. She began her career as an elementary school teacher in Metro Atlanta after graduating from North Georgia College in 1995 with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. From there, the military carried her family to Texas, Tennessee, Alabama, and California where she continued to teach in elementary schools.
Her most recent move has brought her to Currituck County Middle School. At CCMS, Mrs. Cowan taught 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts. During the 2017-18 school year Mrs. Cowan moved into the role of assistant principal and then to interim principal after Dr. Matt Lutz was promoted to Assistant Superintendent.
Chief Information Officer
Mrs. Sandra Reynolds takes over the position of Chief Information Officer for Currituck County Schools after Paul O’Briant’s retirement. Mrs. Reynolds has over 22 years of educational experience. All but one of those years have been in Currituck, the same district she grew up in. She has served as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, and AIG teacher. Mrs. Reynolds earned her Masters in School Administration from East Carolina University. During her time with Currituck County Schools she has earned recognition for outstanding teacher leadership, delivery of high quality professional development and integration of technology. Mrs. Reynolds’ experiences with instructional leadership and technology will serve her well in this new role.

This year, North Carolina will be implementing new procedures for students who must cross the street to board a school bus. These procedures will be implemented in an effort to ensure student safety and avoid serious accidents when students must cross a road to board a school bus. Parents are encouraged to read and reinforce these procedures before the school year begins. Students will receive instruction on these new procedures during the start of the school year. Parent assistance in reinforcing these signals is appreciated! Click HERE for more information.
