Collaboration leads to increased focus on safety in district

Carrollton, Ky. – Dec. 2, 2019 – The Carroll County School District and its local, regional and state partners are focusing on building relationships as the key to school safety. Among other initiatives, the district is part of a $500,000 US Department of Justice STOP School Violence Grant through the Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative (OVEC), which will help 279 schools across all of OVEC’s 15 member school districts develop capacity for school threat assessment and collaborate on safety planning.

 

“We are excited to be part of this initiative,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “And we are even more excited that the grant focuses on assessing threats rather than reacting to them. It’s no secret that schools are grappling with how to handle threats and other troubling behavior from both inside and outside of schools. But we need to remember that relationships are the key to safety, and that is exactly what our school safety teams focus on.”

 

School breakfast and lunch to be sourced closer to home

Carrollton, Ky. — Nov. 26, 2019 — The Carroll County School District has joined the Kentucky Proud movement. Starting in the spring of 2020, the district will begin sourcing some ingredients from Kentucky Proud-approved farmers and vendors.

 

“We can’t wait to get started,” said Lisa Gault, food service director for the district. “Kentucky Proud is a great program, and there are a lot of quality growers in and around Carroll County. It just makes sense for us to work with the farmers in our backyard.”

 

District approved for NTI days

Carrollton, Ky. — Nov. 7, 2019 — We are pleased to announce that Carroll County Schools has been granted state permission to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction” (NTI) days during the 2019-2020 school year. This plan will allow learning to take place at home when conditions prevent schools from being in session. An NTI day will count as an instructional day and will not have to be made up at the end of the school year. 

 

District reviews data from 2018-2019, first year of new accountability system

Carrollton, Ky. — October 2, 2019 — The Kentucky Department of Education has released testing accountability scores for schools across Kentucky for the 2018-2019 school year. Under this new accountability testing system, each school receives a star rating between one and five stars. Cartmell Elementary — and Kathryn Winn Primary as Cartmell Elementary’s feeder school — earned one star. Carroll County Middle School earned two stars. Carroll County High School earned two stars.

 

“We are very appreciative of the data from student assessment,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “We will analyze this data and use that information to better meet the needs of all our students. While the data does tell a story, it does not always tell the whole story. Our focus has and will continue to be on being the catalyst of change for every student, preparing them for a hopeful and productive life, which includes building character, work ethic, and other qualities that do not always show up in the assessment data.”
