Learn from this district about:

Creating meaningful integration of science, technology, engineering, and math (iSTEM): Charlottesville City Schools (CCS) students benefit from the district’s involvement with the University of Virginia, the Virginia STEM Learning Network, and partners in its Investing In Innovation grant with the U.S. Department of Education.

Extending the school year: Extending the Bridges of Literacy is a district program that serves students grades 1-6 across the seven CCS elementary schools that need additional time immersed in language arts skills. The program extends school by 1.5 hours three days a week for 30 weeks during the academic year, and adds 27 days to the normal academic calendar.

Building a robust instructional technology integration: The CCS professional learning model provides differentiated, collaborative, and blended delivery models to teachers. Teachers take full advantage of the productivity tools from Google Apps for Education, along with the district’s Learning Management System (Canvas by Instructure).

Providing a unique cybersecurity summer camp: The district offers a three-week, full-day cybersecurity summer camp to students in grades 10-12, which is designed to provide students with increased awareness of careers in cybersecurity, engagement in project-driven, hands-on learning activities related to cybersecurity, and a foundation from which they can pursue a certification during the school year.
