District implements five-year strategic plan

Carrollton, KY — August 18, 2016 — Added to the start of a new school year, new classes for students and new routines for parents is yet another beginning: the official start of the implementation phase of the Carroll County School District’s five-year strategic plan.

A group of community members and district personnel completed a months-long strategic planning process earlier this year. The result of that process is a blueprint for making the Carroll County School District as efficient and effective as possible when it comes to helping students succeed.

The six pillars of the strategic plan are as follows:

  • Teaching and learning
  • Technology
  • Communications and community development
  • Finance
  • Workforce development
  • Facilities

Orange Frog goes district-wide

Carrollton, KY — August 11, 2016 — Four frogs are forced to inhabit a new pond. The pond is beautiful, but no other frogs will live there. What does this have to do with being happy? A lot, it turns out.

 

A parable based on the research of psychologist Shawn Achor, “The Orange Frog” is a book that shows how being happy leads to being successful.

 

“The big lesson of ‘The Orange Frog’ is that we choose our own reality,” said Carroll County High School teacher Mollie Shirley, who recently completed training to lead workshops on the program. “We can choose to keep happiness on the other side of every goal. We can choose to see ourselves as the losers in every battle. Or we can choose to embrace happiness and the positive results that flow from that decision.”
