Charlotte County Public Schools is dedicated to its mission “to cultivate 21st Century globally competitive student leaders”. Our teachers and administrators strive to provide engaging instruction, focusing on relevance and rigor. During this school year, our instructional staff will be examining the curriculum and lesson plans, assuring that the written, taught, and assessed components are properly aligned, not only for the content, but also for incorporating higher levels thinking skills, such as creative thinking, problem solving, accessing, analyzing and applying information, and effective communication and collaboration. These skills, along with integration of technology into daily instruction, are essential for success.


The division continues its CASHE (Connecting All Student to Higher Education) initiative with the goal of 100% of Randolph-Henry High School students participating in postsecondary educational options. This program provides resources and activities in all grades (PK-12) and maintains a CASHE Student Record Card for each student to assist with ongoing career and instructional planning at all grade levels.
