Camden County Schools (CCS) has been awarded a $3 million competitive World Language Department of Defense grant titled PASSPORT (Proficiency in ASL and Spanish for Students through Partnerships, Offerings, Recruitment strategies, and Technology). CCS is the only school district in the state of Georgia and is one of only nine districts in the nation, that has been awarded this grant.

 Within the five-year award period, Camden County Schools will extend the Spanish and/or American Sign Language (ASL) enrollment of students in grades 1–12. The grant seeks to provide students with creative language experiences, expand the World Language instructional program, and to use technology effectively in supporting World Language content. Students will have access to engaging and challenging World Language curriculum and proficiency levels, and teachers will have access to World Language instructional resources and professional learning. 

Through the implementation of the PASSPORT initiative, students will leave Camden County Schools with high-level world language proficiency, prepared for college or the workforce and ready to compete in high-demand industries for bilingual employees. Additionally, world language proficiency is a priority for increased national security clearance.

“At Camden County Schools, we are honored to be awarded the DoDEA World Language Advancement and Readiness Program grant. Preparing students to be globally competitive in the workforce is paramount for our district. World language immersion strengthens the opportunity for post-secondary success,” said Dr. Denise Cato, Federal Programs and Special Projects Director.

Mask Requirements

Who is required to wear a mask?

The mandatory mask requirement will be in effect for all students, staff, and visitors in our schools, buildings, and on student transportation. 

Are there any exceptions?

Exceptions based on medical needs for students and staff must be documented by a physician and that documentation will be treated as confidential and retained in the office of the principal. Some students with disabilities may be exempt based on individual needs as determined by the Director of Special Education. Staff members may remove their masks when students are not present and social distancing from other adults is possible. Students and adults may remove their mask when they are eating or drinking, or other activities approved by the principal.

Do we need to provide a mask for our student or is one provided by the schools?

We ask parents to provide reusable masks for their students, but we will be able to provide masks for students who are unable to provide one on their own.

Can you wear a face shield instead of a mask?

Every student, staff member, and visitor needs to wear a mask. Face shields can add an extra layer of protection and be worn in conjunction with a mask. We have been advised by health authorities that a face shield does not offer the needed protection if a mask is also not worn. 

What are requirements for masks?

ALLOWED:

  • Cloth masks with multiple layers of tightly woven, breathable fabric
  • Disposable masks constructed of multiple layers of non-woven material
  • Gator style face coverings that are doubled to create two layers

NOT ALLOWED:

  • Masks made of thin fabric that doesn’t block light.
  • Masks made of lace, mesh, or a similar fabric that appear see-through when held up to a light source.
