Dr. Calveric’s experience as an educator and her extensive leadership across many aspects of Caroline County Public Schools as Assistant Superintendent of Instruction will enhance her success in guiding CCPS to even greater achievement. When Dr. Calveric began employment with CCPS in 2016, she charted a course with the instructional leadership team that resulted in CCPS schools moving from 40% fully accredited to 80% fully accredited in two years.
