DISTRICTS OF DISTINCTION RECOGNIZED DISTRICTS OF DISTINCTION RECOGNIZED

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) – The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) and the Kentucky Department of Education recognized five school districts as Districts of Distinction at the board’s meeting today.

The districts earned the recognition under the fourth year of the Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All accountability system. To qualify as a District of Distinction, a district has to have an overall accountability score at the 95th percentile or higher (based on achievement, gap, growth, college- and career-readiness, graduation rate and program reviews), meet its current year Annual Measureable Objective, have at least a 95 percent participation rate, and not have a Focus or Priority School in the district. The achievement data is based on K-PREP testing in spring 2015.

The Districts of Distinction for the 2014-15 school year are:

 Calloway County

 Floyd County

 Fort Thomas Independent

 Hickman County

 Russell Independent

In addition, Hickman County, Calloway County and Russell Independent were recognized as High Progress Districts, which means they are in the top 10 percent of improvement compared to other districts in the state.

KBE Vice-Chair Bill Twyman and Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt presented each district superintendent and local board of education representative with a recognition banner and letter of commendation. Each district also will receive a District of Distinction logo which can be displayed on its website, letterhead or used in other ways to promote its accomplishment. Additionally, the three High Progress districts received a certificate of commendation.

Hickman County Schools Provide Meals at No Charge To Students
 

It is with great pleasure that our school announces the ability to provide a breakfast and lunch each day at no charge to students. We have added new meal choices based on student preference, and anticipate options to be of greater quality than ever before. We are also excited to announce that we will begin a grab and go breakfast program in hopes to make breakfast more accessible to each student before beginning their day of learning. We look forward to an opportunity to ensure that no kid will ever go hungry at Hickman County Schools.

Challenger Center Challenger Center
Students in 5th grade were given the opportunity to travel to Paducah to the Challenger Learning Center, named after the shuttle from the 80s. The center provides meaningful, engaging simulations where students can work as a team to solve problems. Students use math and literacy skills, while exploring careers of real people. They were also introduced to new vocabulary, while being able to show what they already knew about comets. Overall, the students were excited and most have expressed the desire to return.
