Caroline Moving in the Right Direction
On September 27, 2018 the Virginia Department of Education released accreditation results for schools across the Commonwealth. Caroline County Public Schools celebrates an increase in school accreditation with 4 out of 5 CCPS schools accredited and one school accredited with conditions. Caroline County Public Schools has a lot to celebrate based on the 17-18 SOL results. All buildings met with success in the academic achievement indicators of math and science. In the area of mathematics, the three elementary schools all scored over 82%, while Caroline Middle and Caroline High School exceeded the state target. All schools demonstrated success in science by exceeding the state target. In the 2018-19 school year, students with disabilities and chronic absenteeism will be a division focus. Each school has crafted a School Wide Plan that address specific areas of growth in each content area. The individualized School Wide Plans will encompass student specific goals, strategies, and assessment tools to drive quality instruction and enhance student achievement. Collaborative efforts between the central office team and school leadership will allow CCPS to progress monitor growth and provide the professional development needed for continue success.
