Carrollton, Ky. — December 10, 2018 — North American Stainless is known for forging steel. Now in collaboration with the Carroll County School District, NAS is forging new school leaders.
“Thanks to NAS, we are creating a new school leadership program in our district,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “Starting this spring, Carroll County School District employees will have the opportunity to enter a program that will culminate in administrator certifications from the University of Louisville.”
The Leading for Learning program begins with four Saturday Seminars designed to convey the district’s mission and vision to potential participants. Individuals who complete the Saturday Seminars will be able to apply for competitive scholarships to a formal leadership graduate program through UofL.
We are pleased to announce that Carroll County Schools has been granted state permission to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction” (NTI) days during the 2018-2019 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.
Carrollton, Ky. — October 22, 2018 — If you see Chelsea Moore, there is a good chance she is helping someone. When she is not earning Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certifications at the Carroll County Area Technology Center, she works as a mechanic at Herb Kinman Chevrolet and serves on the Westside Volunteer Fire Department.
“Chelsea is a hard worker, and she knows where she is going,” said interim ATC principal Ron Livingood. “She doesn’t wait around for opportunities to come her way. She understands that ‘opportunity’ and ‘work’ are the same thing, something we try to teach all of our students.”
A senior at Carroll County High School, Moore takes classes in the morning and works in the afternoon through the ATC’s co-op program. However, Moore’s work day does not end when school does.
Carrollton, Ky. — September 27, 2018 — Carroll County High School exceeded all accountability indicators from the Kentucky Department of Education for the 2017–2018 school year. Other Carroll County School District schools exceeded KDE’s growth metrics for school accountability.
“Release of assessment data is always an exciting time. It’s a time for reflection upon our work from the previous year and an opportunity to analyze data to best determine our next steps to improving the educational experiences for all our students,” said Superintendent Danny Osborne. “Proficiency scores are an important indicator of student learning, and while we are surpassing the cut scores for growth across the entire district, we know we have some work to do in that area and are always seeking to improve. However, we also know that proficiency in isolation isn’t always a predictor of future success and that proficiency scores alone do not define our students nor do they celebrate their unique talents, skills, and interests, which are indicators that factor into lifelong success.”
Kentucky’s 2017–2018 accountability system measured the following indicators, according to a state release:
Carrollton, Ky. — August 29, 2018 — Starting Sept. 10, in order to ensure the safety of our students, all visitors must present identification before entering a Carroll County School District school.

For many years, schools have urged all students to earn bachelor's degrees because, overall, they carry higher lifetime earnings. But economic changes—and the cost of college—have made that picture more complex.
Young workers in some occupations can anticipate higher earnings with an industry credential or associate degree than they can with a bachelor's, research has shown. Coupled with projections about which jobs will be in demand in the coming years, that kind of information is crucial for students as they imagine their futures.
High school students from across our service region of Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Owen and Trimble counties will be deciding their courses for next year over the remainder of this school year.
Many times students and parents would benefit from having all the information about some amazing opportunities that are available for their students.
Education in Kentucky and across the nation is changing. If your students are looking for something outside the traditional four classroom walls then maybe consider the following opportunities.
Today’s workforce looks much different than what we have experienced in the past. Technology has been integrated into most careers. Not only do employees need the traditional knowledge and skills as in the past, but now employees must have a grasp on how to use technological advancements to get the job done more efficiently.
We are excited to offer legitimate and much needed training to high school students at the Carroll County Area Technology Center. Our programs offer advantages such as dual college credit through JCTC, recognized Industry Certifications, hands-on training and opportunities for experience.
