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.

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. 

Siemens Donates $100,000 Worth of Equipment and Training to THINC Students and Teachers
At a community and industry event held yesterday at the Kia Georgia Training Center in West Point, Georgia, Siemens Digital Factory, U.S. President, Raj Batra, announced the donation of $100,000 in automation hardware and expert training to support career pathways in manufacturing and engineering at THINC College & Career Academy.

To kick off the event, Governor Nathan Deal emphasized Georgia’s commitment to further fostering public-private-academic partnerships to train the workforce of the future.  “We value the continued investments from Kia and Siemens in Georgia and we respect the vision of the companies’ leadership,” said Deal. “The strong relationships between the company, the community and the state are a model for the kind of partnerships we strive for, as we cultivate the next generation workforce”

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.
