Caroline County Public Schools received a Green Certification award in the 2017 Virginia School Boards Association’s (VSBA) Green Schools Challenge. It is a friendly competition designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by both the local school division and the broader community. This is the ninth year the awards were given out.
The Certified Green School Division winners were recognized at the VSBA Annual Convention being held in Williamsburg. The 30 school divisions were recognized as being Certified Green School Divisions by implementing new actions and adopting new policies that earn the divisions “green points”. The VSBA Green Schools Challenge was sponsored by Moseley Architects and ABM Education.

Caroline County Public Schools is thrilled to announce the launch of a new primary critical thinking program called Young Explorers. Young Explorers is designed to address a wide variety of critical thinking skills and strategies and to challenge students to think in different ways. The goal of the program is to recognize and cultivate the talents and abilities of all children in Caroline County at an early age, as well as identify students who may be underrepresented in the gifted program. Gifted specialists and classroom teachers collaborate to plan and teach these daily lessons that address topics such as mindset, memory, deductive reasoning, vocabulary, algebraic thinking and more. The program is implemented at the second grade level in all three elementary schools in Caroline County including Bowling Green, Madison and Lewis and Clark.
CCPS is committed to increasing achievement for all students through a variety of best practices, innovative teaching strategies, data analysis, differentiation, and providing students a safe and caring learning environment. As we strive to achieve excellence at the state and national levels,it is pertinent that we recognize the needs of all students, particularly culturally diverse and economically disadvantaged students who may not be reaching their full potential. By implementing the Young Explorers program and observing students more closely, we will have a better understanding of each student who comes through our doors and respond appropriately to their feelings, behaviors, and needs. CCPS is very dedicated to providing classrooms where potential is actively nurtured and valued.
The Young Explorers program was developed by CCPS gifted specialists Barbara Miller, Lindsey Rose, and Chelsea Spiegel. Dr. Joanne Jones, Director of Curriculum shared, “Caroline is excited about the potential of the program and would like to thank Chesterfield and Hanover Counties for their collaborative support and shared successes with similar programs.”
Caroline County Public Schools would like to cordially invite you to an exciting evening on October 6, 2017. We will begin from 4pm to 5:30pm with tours of the newly renovated Caroline High School. We will then hold a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5:30pm to mark this special occasion followed by the 2017 Homecoming Parade and a tailgate for you to enjoy.
We hope that you can make plans to attend this monumental time in our schools history as we have just recently approved our 5 year strategic plan, Pathways 2022, which will also be highlighted at the event.
