A message from Dr. Livingood about the Aug. 21 eclipse

In the Carroll County School District, we want to embrace Monday’s solar eclipse as a learning opportunity for our students. However, we understand that there are safety concerns, so we have taken steps to ensure that our students can view the eclipse under our supervision and with proper safety equipment:

  • We have secured eclipse glasses for all of our students from a NASA-approved vendor.
  • We have extended the school day on Monday by 30 minutes.
  • For students to view the eclipse, their parents or guardians must sign and return a permission form before the eclipse begins.
  • We respect the right of parents and guardians to prevent their children from directly viewing the eclipse. However, for students who must remain indoors during the eclipse, we will be streaming the eclipse live so that they can view it via our projection equipment.

We expect that our students will have a safe and memorable learning experience during the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.

Dr. Ron Livingood

Interim Superintendent

Carroll County School District

CCHS, Distinguished — District, Proficient: Change in the air

Carrollton, KY — Sept. 29, 2016 — Annual test scores are in, and the results are incredible. Carroll County High School is a Distinguished School, and the Carroll County School District is a Proficient District, according to the Kentucky Department of Education’s Next-Generation Achievement testing system.

“I have been saying for years now that we have one of the best districts in the state,” said Superintendent Bill Hogan. “We are thrilled to see the hard work of our students and our staff pay off.”

Carroll County High School’s “Distinguished” rating means it is among the best schools in the state. Additionally, the high school was rated a “high-progress” school, which means that the school met its yearly AMO goal, met student participation and graduation rate goals, has had a graduation rate above 80 for the previous two years and has “an improvement score indicating that it is in the top 10% of improvement,” according to the Kentucky School Report Card.

District partners with Bellarmine to train teachers

 

Carrollton, KY — September 15, 2016 — 20 Carroll County School District elementary teachers are taking big steps this year to help their students. Through a partnership with Bellarmine University, 20 elementary teachers this school year will receive advanced training in reading instruction and intervention.

“After the success of our All in for Algebra project, we knew we needed to replicate that model for reading instruction,” said Superintendent Bill Hogan. “Working closely with top universities to provide top training for our teachers moves the needle on learning.”

The All in for Algebra initiative is a grant-funded project in its second year in the district. University of Louisville professors have been working with around two dozen of the district’s mathematics and elementary teachers in workshops and graduate classes.

The goal of Bellarmine Reading is to match the success of the All in for Algebra project on the reading side
