Andre Jones of the New Kent-Charles City Chronicle was recognized by the Charles City School Board to be included in the annual Virginia School Boards Association Media Honor Roll.
Mr. Jones and the NKCC Chronicle were recognized for the fair and balanced reporting on school division and education-related topics. This award is a way to personally thank the NKCC Chronicle for their approach to sharing with our community both the challenges that face our schools and the successes that are achieved by Charles City County Public Schools (CCPS) teachers and students. The reporting by the NKCC Chronicle has aided in focusing on our larger goal of providing the best public schools that we can for our children.
CCPS commends the NKCC Chronicle for the role that they play in building better opportunities for our children and for their continued partnership with the school division in promoting positive and high-quality educational experiences and programming.
When Charles City High School students return to school on September 6th, their usual school supplies, books and materials required for the year will include one additional item – a laptop computer.
The Charles City Public Schools (CCPS) School Board took action last evening at its Regular Meeting to approve a School Security Equipment Grant totaling $53,427 from the Virginia Department of Education. The grant was established by the Virginia General Assembly in 2013 as an opportunity in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy to provide local school divisions with grant funding to enhance school facility safety and security measures.
