Caroline County School Board Announces Superintendent Search

The Caroline County School Board announced today that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications.

The school board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available by using the following link Superintendent Search Survey

Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the school board administration offices and at each school.

In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing on June 11, 2018 at 5:30 PM in the Caroline Middle School Auditorium.

“Hiring a new superintendent is an important task for the school board and we encourage that the public participate in the process of determining qualifications for our next superintendent,” said School Board Chairman George Spaulding, “We hope that all community members will take time to fill out the online survey or attend the public hearing.”

The school board selected the Virginia School Board Association (VSBA) to assist the board with the superintendent search.

Wednesday, May 23 (Full School Day)

Due to recent inclement weather closures, Wednesday, May 23 will now be a full school day. This change will permit schools to conclude SOL and end of course testing, complete end of year events, and conduct celebratory activities.

Caroline High School Students Refurbish and Donate Computers

The high school’s Makerspace club is involved in a state-wide program that teaches students to refurbish surplus computer hardware from government agencies and private companies. The Virginia Student Training and Refurbishment Program, also known as VA STAR, allows Caroline County students to learn hands-on technical repair skills in an after-school setting.

Today, the club made a donation of 51 refurbished VA STAR computers! The machines came from FEMA via VA STAR without hard drives. The donation recipient independently raised $2,000 to purchase hard drives and other parts. Students spent many hours after school refurbishing the machines, installing new hard drives, and installing operating system software.
