Return-to-Competition Plan

Carroll County Schools, in consultation with Three Rivers Health Department, has developed a plan for return-to-competition play protocols for coaches and athletes. This plan is subject to change in a moment’s notice due to the Governor’s orders, KHSAA regulations, health department guidance or school board policy. While KHSAA is the governing body for high school athletics, all decisions are the responsibility of the local school district.

 

ALL athletes, coaches, parents and guardians MUST follow ALL guidelines in order to participate in the Return-to-Competition Plan. This plan will be STRICTLY enforced by all coaches, the athletic director and administration.

New mask guidance issued

The first nine-week grading period will end on November 2. We anticipate a return to in-person classes on November 4 for students who chose the Distance Learning/In-Person instructional model. Students who chose the Virtual School instructional model will continue in that model for at least the first semester. While it remains our goal to return to 100% in-person learning on November 4, if conditions remain that limit our capacity to return to 100% in-person learning, we will explore implementing a hybrid learning model.

 

As we receive additional guidance from the Kentucky Department of Education and other authorities, we will do our best to keep you informed.

 

As such, all school districts were given new guidelines from the Kentucky Department of Education on September 1 that we are required to implement and follow. Below, you will find a link to a document for your review. The most significant change pertains to the use of Cloth Face Coverings (Masks). The expectation reads: "the use of cloth face coverings (masks) should be required by all students and staff at all times while in the building or on the bus, unless medically waivered. Students and staff should only lower their masks while actively eating or drinking. This change is reflected on pages 7, 8, 9, 10, and 13."

Virtual School students to use Edgenuity/PathBlazers

Carrollton, Ky. - Aug. 14, 2020 - There has been a recent change to the Virtual School option for Carroll County School District students. Students who chose the Virtual School option will now use the Edgenuity web-based curriculum instead of the K12 curriculum originally communicated with families. Edgenuity has similar features to the K12 curriculum, such as incorporating teacher videos, integrating class meetings and supplemental lessons. There are supports built in for Special Education, English Language Learners and Advanced Learners. The courses all align with state standards and integrate with MAP, which will be used for district-wide benchmark assessments this year. Carroll County High School already uses Edgenuity, so they are very familiar with the components offered for grades 6-12. We have been exploring the recently added virtual curriculum for grades K-5, called PathBlazers. We are impressed with the components of the curriculum and the kid-friendly approach to learning. It delivers direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice and just-in-time reteaching and assessment.
