Carroll High School Partners w/ Ivy Tech Integrated Technology Education Program

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
The Carroll Consolidated School Corporation School Board of Trustees approved a letter of engagement with Ivy Tech Kokomo this week.  Carroll is integrating its Advanced Manufacturing Program with Ivy Tech's Integrated Technology Education Program.  Carroll High School Teacher, Tyler Sausamen has been successfully producing students with the up to four national certifications which qualify students for MSSC and CPT certifications.  These students have documented and proven skills ready to move into Careers in Advanced and High Tech Manufacturing or further their training at post secondary institutions.  http://www.msscusa.org/certification/

Carroll is committed to providing North Central Indiana with College and Career ready workforce to  tackle the high tech careers of the future.  Our partnership with Ivy Tech Kokomo gives our students the chance to visit numerous employers and use some of the latest and best equipment in various industries.  This makes Carroll County a great place for any high tech manufacturer to locate.  

Students who finish the Advanced Manufacturing program with CHS can qualify for a full ride scholarship to Ivy Tech Kokomo to complete an associates degree in one of the aligned programs.  This is paid for by the  Youth Connect Grant for Ivy Tech Kokomo.   Industry data documents students who have an MSSC and CPT certification can make $50,000 per year or more with some positions earning as much as $80,000 per year.  

Once again, CCSC demonstrates our ability to be a small school that provides multiple opportunities to students and families.

STEM Grant with Purdue

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
We are excited to announce Carroll Junior Senior High School has been selected as one of the new Lead Schools for a $250,000 Federal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Integration Grant and Partnership with Purdue University.   CJSHS Principal Angela Moreman has been working with officials from DOE and Purdue on this grant for about six months.    

The grant will provide training for teachers over a three year period.  Teachers will receive summer training and follow up throughout the year.  Purdue has added staff to their Curriculum and Instruction Department over the past two years to support the growth of STEM in Indiana Schools.     

Teachers participating in the program will be given training, develop new units, provided with funds to purchase some new supplies, and paid a stipend for their attendance at the training sessions.   Carroll Junior Senior High School has also submitted its application to be identified as  a STEM school by the Indiana DOE.   Carroll's strong math department and successful engineering and PLTW programs make STEM a natural fit for us.

Server Improvements This Summer

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
This summer we will upgrade all of our server infrastructure. We are purchasing all new devices with more memory and faster processors. In horse racing parlance, we are upgrading from plow horses to thoroughbreds. The new servers won't win the derby, but at least you will recognize them as race horses when they are running. Our current servers are about ten years old. iPad connection speeds from home should improve. We have been planning and budgeting for this improvement for about a year.

Over the summer we will also migrate from a Novell Network to a Microsoft Network. This will help all our various programs and systems work together better. Novell is a stable platform, but very few systems or educational programs are engineered to work with it anymore. This will not impact the iPad connectivity for the students. Parents and students will not notice this change as you use the iPads at home.

I wanted everyone to know about the pending improvements.
