Tuesday, November 26th, the CHS Counseling Department held their first “Life Ready Day” from 7:00-11:00. The CCPS Strategic Plan 2022 commits that graduates from Caroline High School be 3E Ready: Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled. Seventy-nine facilitators presented sessions to the students on various topics. Some of the topics included “Interviewing Tips”, “Overcoming Failure”, “Life After High School is Real”, “Getting to and Through College”, and “Living Your Best Life 101”. Representatives from Central Office, Virginia State Police, colleges, military, television, Caroline County, Caroline’s Promise, and local businesses were just a few who gave their valuable time to the students. The high school provided lunch to the volunteers when the event concluded.
This afternoon, at the awards luncheon during the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) Annual Convention, the Caroline County School Board was designated as a VSBA Board of Distinction. Boards receiving this award must apply for it and meet specific requirements in four key areas: planning, policy, promotion, and board development. A panel of judges reviews the criteria submitted and determines those awarded the VSBA Board of Distinction status.
“The Caroline County School Board is committed to each graduate being 3E Ready: Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled,” said Board Chair, George Spaulding. “Our collective focus on crafting policies, allocating resources, and providing relevant learning opportunities in support of this mission drives our daily work. The School Board is proud of Caroline County Public Schools’ achievements and views the VSBA Board of Distinction recognition as a symbolic representation of our collaborative and strategic efforts.”
The board was recognized at the VSBA Annual Convention in Williamsburg, VA, which brings together school board members, superintendents, division administrators, and education officials from across the state.
