CCPS Awarded School Security Equipment Grant

On September 16, 2015, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced that the Commonwealth awarded $6 million in School Security Equipment Grants to help ensure the safety of Virginia’s schools. The awards were developed by the Virginia Department of Education and the Department of Criminal Justice Services and give priority to schools that are most in need of modern security equipment but are least able to afford these much-needed upgrades.

The grants will apply to 519 schools and other educational facilities in 100 school divisions. The $6 million will go toward paying for video monitoring systems, metal detectors, classroom locks, electronic-access controls, visitor-identification systems and other security upgrades.

We are pleased to announce that Caroline County Public Schools will be awarded $100,000 for the 2015 School Security Equipment Grant. Grant funding is to be used for Bowling Green Elementary School, Caroline High School, and Caroline Middle School.

The School Security Equipment Grant program was established by the 2013 General Assembly in the aftermath of the December 14, 2012, mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

School divisions and regional educational programs were invited in June to apply for the 2015 grants. The largest grant a school division may receive under the program is $100,000. A local match of 25 percent is required of most divisions.

Caroline County Public Schools also received the grant in 2014. This grant allowed Caroline County Public Schools to implement electronic access control at Caroline Middle School and Bowling Green Elementary School.

UCI Road World Bicycle Championships Information

The UCI Road World Championships are scheduled from September 19-27, 2015, and will be taking place in the greater Richmond area during that time. On Wednesday, September 23, 2015, the Men’s Elite Time Trial is scheduled to take place from 12:00 noon to 3:30 p.m. starting at King’s Dominion, traveling east through Caroline on Route 30 to Route 301 south to Hanover.
We anticipate that traffic will be impacted in the Dawn area of the county during that timeframe. However, it is not anticipated that bus routes both to and from school will be significantly impacted in Dawn or surrounding areas of the county. Should there be a delay in opening routes 30 or 301, our transportation staff will work with school staff and our county sheriff’s office to ensure that every student is transported home at the first opportunity.
Since this major event will enter Caroline County, we anticipate that some members in the community may plan to attend the event as spectators. Please know that Caroline County Public Schools will remain open for classes on September 23, 2015. Therefore, should a parent or guardian wish to attend the event with children of school-age, a written note should be provided to the school at the first opportunity. Upon receipt of proper documentation, students who attend the UCI Road World Championships on September, 23, 2015, will be documented as excused absent for reporting purposes.
Due to the anticipated impact that the race will have on public transportation in the counties of Henrico and Hanover, schools will be closed for September 23, 2015. Richmond City Public Schools will close early on September 24th and they will be closed on September 25, 2015.
Attached is the map of the bike route in Caroline county. Should you have any questions regarding school bus routes on the day of the race, please contact Mr. J.D. Satterwhite, Transportation Supervisor at 804-633-6562.
