GREENSBORO -- The long summer break is officially over. Thousands of children across the Piedmont-Triad head back to class for the first day of school.

More than 41,000 students head back to school in Guilford County. Superintendent Mo Greene says the school year is starting off on a high note with the announcement that North Carolina is set to receive the "Race to the Top" educational grant.

"[There are] opportunities all over the state, including Guilford County, to use dollars that will help with various strategies and initiatives, particularly focusing on recruiting and retaining teachers and school-based administrators," he said.

Greene says this school year the focus is on character development and literacy.
