Caroline County Elementary Schools Earn Reading Banner

Caroline County Public Schools receives first in the nation award from American Reading Company.

During the 2013-2014 school year Caroline County elementary schools and American Reading Company entered a partnership - a journey that would take teachers and students down a path of college and career readiness. The first goal of the journey was to have all students in grades 3-5 read an hour a day for every school day.  Students read for 30 minutes at school and 30 minutes at home. Each school that reached the goal of having 90% of their students reach the reading target by June 1st would be recognized by American Reading Company as an Honor Roll School and presented a banner to be hung at each school. In addition, if the district was to have all five schools reach the set goal the district would become an Honor Roll District. As of June 1, 2014 Caroline County Public Schools had 98.2% of students reading an hour a day - a giant step in preparing their children for college and career. As a result, American Reading Company presented the district team its Honor District Banner for 2013-2014. This honor was the first of its kind in the nation.
