Carrollton, Ky. - January 26, 2022 - The Carroll County School District has been selected to participate in the Kentucky Innovative Learning Network through the Kentucky Department of Education. The program allows district administrators to collaborate with other school administrators from across the state to share innovative strategies and tactics that lead to "learner-centered, collaborative, equitable, and authentic learning opportunities." Participating districts have access to national educational partners as well as funds that can be used to visit exemplary school districts.
"This is an incredible honor for our school district," said Superintendent Danny Osborne. "In spite of the pandemic, we have been able to move forward with a variety of innovative educational initiatives, and I'm very happy to see that our administrators will be able to both showcase those innovations as well as to learn from others through this program."
Among other initiatives, the district was recognized for its innovation through the PEAK Award from the Kentucky School Boards Association in 2020. KSBA’s Public Education Achieves in Kentucky (PEAK) Award, given twice yearly, was established in 1997 to focus statewide attention on outstanding public school efforts that enhance student learning and promote the positive impact of public elementary and secondary education in Kentucky. The success of the Double C Farm at Camp KYSOC led to the district winning the award.
"With the education landscape changing so much, programs like KY ILN will be key for the Carroll County School District moving forward," Osborne said. "The needs of students are always changing, and teaching and learning will continue to change as well."
The Carroll County School District is a public school system that operates within the geographic boundaries of Carroll County, Kentucky. The district serves around 1,900 students K-12. For more information on the Carroll County School District, visit http://carroll.kyschools.us
