Pre-engineering and biomedical program to begin third year

Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a pre-engineering and biomedical sciences curriculum for grades 6-12, is moving into its third year at Carroll County Middle School and Carroll County High School.

 

“We want our students to take the PLTW classes,” said high school guidance counselor Sheree Richter.  “Not only are these classes rigorous and relevant, but they are also credit-bearing college courses.”
 
Additionally, over the summer, PLTW officials announced that many students will not have to pay fees associated with earning college credits for PLTW courses at University of Kentucky’s College of Engineering.
 
Many groups have made PLTW possible in the Carroll County School District.  North American Stainless, Dow Corning and the Bemis Company have all contributed financially to the initiative. 
 
“A program like this takes a lot of support,” Richter said.  “We are fortunate to have groups willing to invest in the future of our students.”

Monroe will be leading several building and district initiatives at Winn, including Denver Thinking Strategies, the new Professional Growth and Evaluation System (PGES) and implementation of the Race to the Top Kid-FRIENDLY grant.  Additionally, Monroe’s experience as a literacy coach will be valuable as Winn further emphasizes the importance of literacy in the early grades.

Carroll County helps kick off one of nation’s largest Race to the Top projects

Carrollton, KY (August 26, 2013) – It isn’t “back to school” as usual this year for 22 Kentucky school districts, including Carroll County.  The nation has made a $41 million investment in the districts as a whole, and they are getting ready to prove what they can achieve.

 

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday joined representatives of the 22 school districts today to kick off their collaborative effort titled kid-FRIENDLy (Kids Focused, Responsible, Imaginative, Engaged, and Determined to Learn). Kid-FRIENDLy won one of the two largest U.S. Department of Education District-Race to the Top (RTT-D) grants totaling just over $41 million.

 

Kid-FRIENDLy’s grant is the only RTT-D grant to go to rural schools.  More than half of the 59,000+ students that the grant will reach live in rural, impoverished areas and one-third demonstrate risk for academic failure.

 

Governor Beshear said, “This grant gives Kentucky an opportunity to be an incubator of innovation that will make a dramatic difference in the lives of Kentucky children.”
