The Essentials of Learning

Choptank Transportation, Tanglewood, and Choptank Community Health speak to “The Essentials of Learning”

Representatives from local businesses spoke to students, parents, and teachers to informed students, parents, and teachers on the way 21st Century workplaces are structured.  The presentations are a component of the Caroline County Public School Essentials for Learning initiative. From pre-K through graduation, CCPS is teaching rigorous academic standards in ways that incorporate the skills employers need in the workplace: the ability to work in a team structure, make decisions and solve problems, communicate verbally with people, plan, organize, and prioritize work, and obtain and process information.

The speakers did a wonderful job of making this connection and, as Superintendent Dr. Patricia W. Saelens said, providing the “why?” for the Essentials for Learning Initiative.
