Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence Parent Leadership Training Available

The Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence will bring a new parent leadership training one-day “basecamp” to northern Kentucky in April. The camp will give parents a look inside public education in Kentucky and provide them with tools to effectively engage in their children’s school, said Helen Carroll, NKY parent leadership coordinator. Since 1997, the Prichard Committee has trained more than 300 northern Kentucky parents through the Governor’s Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership. GCIPL is a five-day training that gives parents a deep dive into public education, including the Kentucky Academic Standards, accountability, school data and school governance.

Last year, northern Kentucky superintendents suggested that Pritchard help parents and community members become in engaged in efforts to support achievement for all students. The Prichard Committee responded to the call and created this one-day training program, open to any parent in Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Pendleton, Grant, Bracken or Gallatin counties. The training will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 29 at the Kenton County Public Library in Covington. There is no cost and meals will be provided. Space is limited, so register soon at http://tiny.cc/gciplbasecamp.

Campbell Nationally Ranked – 9th time in 4 years Campbell Nationally Ranked – 9th time in 4 years

CAMPBELL COUNTY SCHOOLS – Campbell County School District learned this week that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking. CCHS was ranked as one of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” by the Washington Post with Campbell County High School ranking 9th out of all public high schools in the State of Kentucky.  Schools who are national ranked are given an index score.   The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).

This is the 9th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years. (See rankings below).  The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments.

Campbell County Receives 8th National Ranking in 4 Years!

Campbell County School District learned this morning that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking! CCHS received a Silver ranking from U.S. News and World Report ranking CCHS 17th in the State of Kentucky and 1606 in the nation.  A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

This is the 8th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years! The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments. WAY TO GO CAMELS!

KY Education Commissioner to Host Town Hall Meeting at NKU

Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt announced he will host a series of regional Town Hall Meetings across the Commonwealth to gather feedback from Kentuckians on how they define school success.

The Town Hall Meetings are critical to this effort, and I hope parents, community members, teachers, students, legislators, business owners and concerned citizens will come to these meetings ready to share their thoughts and ideas,” he added. “Together we will create a new system that will ensure we do the very best for all our kids and provide them with a well-rounded education that will prepare them to be successful, productive citizens of the Commonwealth.”

Cline Elementary Receives Grant Cline Elementary Receives Grant

The Cline Discovery Garden at Donald E. Cline Elementary received a $900 grant from the Campbell County Extension Office for the second year in a row!  The grant money will be used to continue the gardening experience for the students.  Last year, the raised beds were installed and the students planted fruits and vegetables such as corn, tomatoes, pumpkins, watermelons, zucchini, strawberries, peppers, broccoli, radishes, eggplant, lettuces and herbs.  Students tended to the plants and then had harvest parties so they could taste the “fruits of their labor”. We are hoping to take our harvest to the Alexandria County Fair again this year.  Last year our watermelon won 1st prize! The hands on learning have taught the students all about the gardening process, lifecycles of plants and the importance of nutrition.

Sincerely,

Lynn T. Poe

Career Day

 

 

 

 

 

We had a very successful Career Day on Thursday, March 21st.

There were 24 presenters from numerous career clusters, including a civil and electrical engineer, pilot, plumber, yoga instructor, accountant, medical technologist, veterinarians, and artist online to name a few.  The third, fourth, and fifth graders were invited to attend. Each presenter had their own table in a festively decorated gym.  In four separate sessions they spoke to small groups of students who had chosen to see them.  There was much valuable information shared.   The presenters described their careers, and experiences, and connected the importance of learning and school to choosing a career.  The students were receptive and engaged in what was going on, and talked about it later. The day began with a continental breakfast, and art students made “dream catchers” for the presenters so they would remember Cline.
