Morning route delayed — Bus #146 Carroll County School District Bus

Carrollton, Ky. - Feb. 26, 2020 - Due to unforeseen circumstances, Bus #146’s morning route will be covered by a substitute bus on Thursday, Feb. 27, and Friday, Feb. 28, 2020. This will delay Bus #146’s morning route by approximately one hour. Therefore, students will be picked up approximately one hour after their normal morning pickup time on this route.

Students on Bus #146’s route will not be counted tardy. Also, if possible, families are encouraged to find alternate transportation to school for their students on these days.

Bus #146 will run its afternoon route at the normal time.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

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.”


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.
