LCS-ONE Students

LCS-ONE Initiative

Lynchburg City Schools is embarking on a new and exciting journey to provide a personal computing device for students in grades 4 through 12. During the 2014-2015 School Year, all 9th-grade students at both E. C. Glass and Heritage high schools will receive an LCS-issued Chromebook in mid-September. Chromebooks will be turned in at the end of the school year and reissued the following school year. They will be able to use this device as a tool inside the classroom, and if they choose, they can bring it home with them as well.

DEPTH Program Field Trip

More Advanced Opportunities

With the expansion of elementary gifted services through the DEPTH program, LCS is able to better serve identified students in grades 3-5 at every elementary school. Also, LCS continues to expand offerings of more rigorous courses, beginning with accelerated math as early as first grade at many schools. One of the goals in the LCS Comprehensive Plan is to increase the number of students taking at least one advanced, accelerated, or dual enrollment course. Over the past two years, the division has seen a significant increase in students taking advantage of these course offerings. With the continued emphasis on acceleration and advanced classes, students can be on track to earn high school credits in middle school, and college credits in high school.

Career Readiness

Career Readiness

This school year, Lynchburg City Schools will partner with the Lynchburg Police Department to offer a Criminal Justice course as part of the Career & Technical Education program. The Nursing Aide program is in its second year and is one of three state licensure programs offered in LCS. LCS is also partnering with area businesses to offer internships to students outside of the classroom. The CTE program not only prepares students to go directly into the workforce upon graduation, it offers dual enrollment college courses so that students can continue their career path into college. It also gives students a chance to see if a career is right for them before they choose to pursue that path after high school.
