CCPS Great American Eclipse Plan

Great American Eclipse image



On ​Monday,​ ​August 21, 2017 ​ the shadow of the Moon will sweep across the Earth producing a solar eclipse.   The Great American Eclipse will range from a total to partial eclipse depending on location.  In Central Virginia, we will experience a partial eclipse, which will begin at approximately 1:14 p.m. and end at approximately 4:02 p.m.   The maximum viewing time for the eclipse will be at 2:41 p.m.  


Campbell County Public Schools recognizes the eclipse will coincide with dismissal time and safety is our top priority.   All schools throughout the division will be educating students about the safety risks.  Looking directly at the sun is unsafe.  Through donations from local businesses, individual school support, and private donors, we have been able to ensure that all students will be provided with special NASA-endorsed eclipse glasses.   Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses are not safe for looking at the sunEach school will offer the opportunity for students to participate in a supervised viewing of the eclipse using the approved eye-wear.     Students will not be permitted outside to view the eclipse without the protective eye-wear.  


On Tuesday, August 15, a letter will be sent home with each child.   In Elementary and Middle School grades parents will be required to complete a permission form and return to your child's school by Thursday, August 17High School students will be given the option to opt out of the high school eclipse viewing.  All students will be given the opportunity to view the eclipse.  Live streaming of the event will also be available inside each school.   The letters are posted below.   There is a specific letter for elementary, middle and high school students.  Click below to access the appropriate letter. 

A solar eclipse is a memory to last a lifetime! Taking precautionary measures to educate our students will ensure a memorable and safe experience.

PRESS RELEASE – For Immediate Release (June 9, 2017)

 

Some schools and students dream of earning a Virginia state title in sports, forensics, and theatre. What about Career and Technical Education programs and preparing students for the workforce?

On June 8, 2017 the Virginia Department of Education recognized English Construction Company and Campbell County Schools as the Region 5 and State winner of the 2017 Creating Excellence Business & Industry Partnership Award for their revolutionary Heavy Equipment Training Program during the summer of 2016.

Jon Hardie, Principal at the Campbell County Technical Center, notes “It’s an honor for English Construction and Campbell County Schools to receive this award. The real honor was partnering with a company like English Construction that is dedicated not only to their industry, but their community, schools, and future workforce. This would not have been possible without the leadership and vision of Douglas Dalton and the team at English Construction.”

English Construction, like many companies, recognized that their workforce is aging so they approached Campbell County Schools about how they could fill their upcoming employment needs and build interest in youth about careers in the construction field.  Together, Douglas Dalton, Kathy Dowdy, Jon Hardie, and Donnie Wilkerson designed a revolutionary training program for high school juniors and seniors aimed to expose and attract students interested in a career in the construction industry. This was a hands-on training program led by business and industry professionals designed to give students the skills the construction industry values, followed by the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Students had to apply to the training program in a method similar to applying for a real work opportunity, including having references. The Heavy Equipment Training included each student earning their OSHA 10 card (Safety Training) and learning how to properly operate and maintain heavy equipment like backhoes. Instruction was led by Mike Scott, Safety Manager for English Construction, assisted by Roy Wilson, Agriculture Instructor at

William Campbell High School. At the end of the training program English Construction offered paid internships for the remainder of the summer to thirteen(13) deserving trainees. For some of the students this opportunity turned into full-time employment after graduation. Jon Hardie notes, “Nothing is more meaningful than filling a need that business and industry has, while providing our next generation with relevant workplace skills, the opportunity to make personal connections, earn employment, and fulfill their own needs by enjoying the work they do.  Our students got those opportunities through this progressive training program.”


Douglas Dalton notes, “English is fortunate to work with such talented folks as Jon Hardie and Donnie Wilkinson at the Campbell County Technical Center. The focus was always on the students and how best to match their abilities and interest within the construction industry.  If we impressed the students half as much as they impressed us, then we consider it a win-win for everyone.” The Heavy Equipment program was so successful that English Construction has not only committed to a second training program for the Summer of 2017 with Campbell County Schools, but they also are running similar summer programs with Montgomery County Schools and Bedford County Schools. 

Campbell County Schools appreciates this recognition from the Virginia Department of Education and believes that Career and Technical Education programs with Work Based Learning opportunities like the English Construction Heavy Equipment Training will assist students in pursuing their post-K12 endeavors.
