Super Saturday Event at CCHS

Saturday, October 1st, the CCHS Counseling Dept. is hosting a college access event called SUPER SATURDAY. The event will feature several open workshops that will cover various college/career readiness topics including: FAFSA completion, college application completion, college essay assistance, recommendation letter requests, scholarship searches, and college/career exploration.  

In addition to six open workshops, we will also have three scheduled parent information sessions on various topics.  Families will not have to make appointments for the open workshops or parent information sessions.  Arrive at any time and pop in and out of sessions as you like!  This is a fantastic opportunity for both parents and students to check several things off of their college to-do lists.  Students can leave on Saturday with the FAFSA completed, college applications on file at universities of choice, recommendation letters requested, a better idea of college/career options, and a list of available scholarships! 

Please see attached program guide for an overview of the workshops, information sessions, and a list of what to bring! Questions?? Please contact your student's School Counselor. Hope to see you there!

Campbell County School Receives 4.9 Million in Federal Funding for Comprehensive School Safety Work

Youth violence continues to be a significant concern in US schools, yet no study has focused on using networked school-aged peers to report and mitigate instances of bullying, peer conflict and/or school violence.  Campbell County School District was notified late last week that they have received 4.9 million dollars in funding from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to do just that.   The district pursued this competitive research grant in May of 2016 as part of the NIJ Comprehensive School Safety Initiative.  The goal of this initiative is to improve the safety of our nation’s schools and students through rigorous research that produces practical knowledge.
