To provide superior Career and Technical Education enabling all students to achieve their aspirations.


The Governor's construction expo was a huge success. A special thanks to everyone from NCCVT who volunteered to support this massive effort. Over 2000 middle school students attended the event.

Always remember, #NCCVTWORKS

Weekly Brief

1. Thank you to the St. Georges team for an exemplary showcase of excellence at Monday's board meeting.

2. Thank you for the positive feedback regarding the administrative workshop on Tuesday. 14 of you indicated that you are willing to lead a part of the book study, thank you!

3. I attended the Policy Makers Breakfast held by the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce. My goal of attending these events is to strengthen our partnerships, meet key individuals, and hear about business as it relates to NCCo.

4. I met with the athletic directors and the administrators who supervise athletics. We are forming a NCCVT High School Athletic Oversight committee to discuss pertinent information as it relates to HS sports. The committee will meet three times a year.

Up Ahead: instructional Rounds & Walkthroughs

1. I will soon be sending out an impact evaluation form. This will be a monthly form that details the impact your walkthroughs (WT) are making. It won't be difficult, too long, or time consuming. The key is to know if our efforts are having a positive impact. Too often we focus on the processes and allow our activity to be confused with progress. Think of a Dr. who makes rounds and uses the number of times a patient was visited as the key metric of success, rather then the health and progress the patient was making toward her recovery.

The form will detail:

  • Who was visited throughout the month
  • Key ideas that resulted and emerged from the WTs
  • Implications from the data gathered in regards to management, leadership, PD, coaching, resources, etc.

I will explain this in greater detail at the administrative council.

2. Terri Villa will begin instructional rounds!
