2018-2019 1:1 Chromebook Parent Video

Updated: 6/19/2018

CCPS is excited to launch a secondary 1:1 initiative during the 2018-2019 school year. As outlined in our strategic plan, Pathways 2022, every 6th through 12th greater will receive a Chromebook during the second week of school. This digital device will become an essential learning tool within our blended learning classrooms. The purposeful integration of technology will enhance students’ college and career readiness and 21st century skills such as creativity, innovation, communication, collaboration, and digital citizenship.

To support parental awareness regarding the 1:1 initiative, one parent/guardian per household will be responsible for viewing the CCPS 1:1 Parent Orientation Video currently available on the CMS and CHS websites. Thank you for completing this brief 15-minute video by Friday, August 17 to prevent uninterrupted delivery of your student’s device. Thank you!

Caroline County School Schools is saying farewell to Dr. George Parker, who will begin as the Superintendent of Newport News City Schools in July. Dr. Parker began in Caroline County in July of 2015.

Additionally, Superintendent Parker was instrumental in the digital conversion initiative, which will put a chromebook laptop in the hands of all 6th-12th grade students during the upcoming school year.

The School Board has begun their search for a new Superintendent. An online survey to seek community input on qualities it values in the next superintendent is available on the CCPS website. Additionally, a public hearing was held on Monday, June 11 before the monthly School Board meeting.

The M.C. Dean Electrical Apprenticeship Program through Caroline High School

On May 18th, 2018 Caroline High School conducted graduation as normal at Mary Washington University in Fredericksburg, VA despite weather concerns that cancelled school for the day. The one aspect at this year’s graduation ceremony that was not considered “normal” was the presence of M.C. Dean Incorporated. M.C. Dean’s lead instructor for their Electrical Apprenticeship Program and Caroline County resident, David Nelson, presented five Caroline Cavaliers with job offers as they walked off the stage with their diplomas in hand.

The five students receiving job offers from M.C. Dean at graduation were Ymari Morton, Gavin Coleman, Isaiah Walker, Clint Terry Jr., and Alexander Crouch. These five students, plus Cavalier junior, Corbin Smith, completed multiple levels of Carpentry at Caroline High School with Mr. Archie Roberts over the last two years to qualify for an opportunity to complete the first year of the electrical apprenticeship program with Mr. Nelson. Mr. Roberts worked with students in class and after school during the months of October, November, and December to make sure they met the necessary qualifications to participate in the M.C. Dean Program. All five students, and Corbin Smith, were transported via school bus to the M.C. Dean facility from Caroline High School each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday during second semester to learn essential skills from Mr. Nelson.

These five students will have the opportunity to work as electric apprentices at M.C. Dean this summer starting in June. The Division’s goal is to expand this experiential learning model to ensure all Caroline graduates have access to relevant learning experiences that promote workplace skills and college and career readiness.
