School closure extended, April 20 new return date

 

Carrollton, Ky. - March 20, 2020 - Schools in the Carroll County School District will remain closed for a week beyond April 13, making April 20 the first day for students to return to school. In a March 20 conference call with superintendents, Gov. Beshear requested that schools remain closed until April 20 as a result of the spread of COVID-19, also known as “the coronavirus.”

 

“I am disappointed that we will remain out of school for another week, but this is the right thing to do,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “Safety is and always will be our first priority. Our teachers, staff members and parents are working hard each day to ensure that our students continue to learn during this closure. I am proud of the work that everyone is doing, and we will continue to deliver meals to our students as we are doing now.” 
 

A message from Superintendent Osborne

Dear Fellow Citizens of Carroll County:


I am beyond saddened for the hardship that closing our schools has caused to our families and to our community. Nothing that I say can take that hardship away, and I promise that we will return to school as soon as we safely can.


The teachers, administrators, and support staff of our school district are all educators, and we entered this profession in large part because we love seeing our students each day. With our NTI process in place, we have shifted instruction online and remote, but we all know that nothing can replace a good day of school.


Nonetheless, we, along with everyone in our community, are making the best of the current situation. I am confident that we are going to emerge on the other side of this a better school district, and a better community.


I want to take a moment to recognize some special members of our school family who have made us proud throughout this COVID-19 situation.

Meal delivery expanded, eleven locations

We are expanding our meal delivery, starting Tuesday, March 17!

District Security Risk Assessments

 

Carrollton, Ky. - March 3, 2020 - During the first two weeks of February, Carroll County Schools received visits from the Office of the State School Security Marshall for Security Risk Assessments. The purpose of the assessments was to work with district schools to ensure that students and staff are in the safest environment possible.

 

“Overall, we were pleased with the results of our Security Risk Assessments,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “This is a testament to the ongoing work of our staff, especially our chief operations officer, Mark Willhoite. Safety is our first priority, and we are lucky to have Mr. Willhoite leading the charge here.”

 

In recent years, the Carroll County School District has implemented numerous safety-related improvements to its facilities and day-to-day operations:

Job-Market Data Inform Carroll Co. Area Technology Center Student Career Plans

For many years, schools have urged all students to earn bachelor's degrees because, overall, they carry higher lifetime earnings. But economic changes—and the cost of college—have made that picture more complex.

Young workers in some occupations can anticipate higher earnings with an industry credential or associate degree than they can with a bachelor's, research has shown. Coupled with projections about which jobs will be in demand in the coming years, that kind of information is crucial for students as they imagine their futures.
