TCSS Seniors Prepare to Find Mentors for Career-Related Capstone Project

Troup County School System (TCSS) seniors across the district are gearing up now for their final portfolio before graduation approaches. The portfolio will be a culmination of work centered on components of the Career-Related Capstone Project.

This project is part of an effort to provide all students with an educational experience that prepares them to be college and career ready. It will allow them to reflect on their career goals, research career-fields they wish to pursue following high school, and compile evidence of career-related experiences. The final project should demonstrate students’ ability to think critically and creatively, communicate effectively and apply their knowledge to real-world issues and scenarios.

Barbara McCain Takes Students on a Higher Order Thinking Journey

Indian in the Cupboard is more than a book to Barbara McCain and the students in her West Point Elementary classroom. It’s an avenue to a higher order of thinking.

This summer, McCain, along with each teacher and school administrator in Troup County, received professional learning from an executive coach connected to the International Center for Leadership in Education. She believes this training provided resources to aid her and other educators in preparing students for the future by encouraging them to move past what they already know. Two areas of training stuck with McCain: The Rigor Relevance Framework and The Thinking Continuum.

West Point Students Clamor to New Makerspace

The students at West Point Elementary are all clamoring to the new makerspace located in the media center. After the International Center for Leadership in Education summer conference and when all teachers received training on the rigor/relevance/relationships framework, the employees decided to create a makerspace community center for students. 

Makerspaces are creative station for students to gather, invent, create, and learn in an alternative environment. The leaders at West Point Elementary chose to start the space with a Boggle Board. At the Boggle Board, students come together, collaborate, and are challenged to create words out of letters placed on the board. Letters are changed monthly to keep the space fresh and inviting while maintaining a rigorous learning environment for the students. 

Opportunity School District Resources - Stay Informed

Last month, the Troup County Board of Education passed a resolution to oppose Governor Deal's Opportunity School District (OSD). We are one of many Georgia school boards that has taken this stance. There are several reasons for opposition to this legislation. Some of our employees and community members may not be familiar with OSD, and as a vehicle of information between the school system and public, TCSS has posted resources to help keep you informed

Opportunity School District, or OSD, is a proposal (SR 287) that will be on the ballot in November. It allows the state to take over schools that have scored 60 or below on the CCRPI for three consecutive years. This new proposed takeover would institute a state plan for those selected schools on the OSD list. TCSS urges you to take a moment and learn what this proposal means to you and the community at large.
