The CCS Expedition is an exclusive program that invites approximately 20 influential Carmel community leaders to participate in an extended dialogue with the Carmel Clay Schools Corporation.
The purpose of this program is for participants to:
1. Gain first-hand knowledge of Carmel Clay Schools
2. Enjoy two-way communication with school leadership
3. Experience the educational excellence that has propelled Carmel Clay Schools to be a high-achieving school district
In eight monthly sessions, Expedition participants go “behind the scenes” of Carmel Clay Schools to meet the people who are responsible for programs and services and see specifically how the Corporation creates a climate of success for its student population.
Sessions focus on specific areas of operations - from elementary school to high school, the classroom to the transportation facility, and buildings to balance sheets – and involve small group discussions, hands-on activities, tours, shadowing, guided observation, and a minimal amount of lecture.
Our first Expedition was a huge success! Our second Expedition begins in August, 2012, with graduates emerging in April, 2013, with a new perspective on Carmel’s public education system.
Future Expedition participants are then selected from recommendations by current and previous Expedition graduates and school leadership.
