Fridays Just Got Better for Preschoolers

By: A. Hebert

Preschoolers and parents of the Boyle County School system have even more reason to say TGIF.  In the upcoming year, the preschools of all three Boyle County Elementary schools will be offering an exciting new program called “Ramp Up Fridays”.  The usual Monday through Thursday morning or afternoon sessions will be supplemented with Friday half-day sessions in this new program.  The goal of this program is encapsulated within the name - to ramp up the formative time that preschoolers spend in the classroom with peers and intentional teaching with a teacher.

Request for Feedback on How to Make Up Snow Days

Boyle County is seeking the opinions of parents, students, and staff. Below are the details surrounding the number of days missed due to weather. The second page of this post (click read more) outlines several different options for making up snow days. There is survey link where you can submit your opinion as well. We hope that you take a moment to participate. Your voice matters!

FACTS: As of March 4, 2014 Boyle County Schools have missed a total of 15 days. Including tomorrow’s cancellation (March 5, 2014). Per state regulations we are required to have a minimum of 1,062 hours of instructions and 170 six hour days. In the original 2013-2014 Boyle County planned for 172 days. At the January 23, 2014 Board Meeting the following changes were made to the school calendar:

  • Reduce the number of instructional days by two. Making the total number of instructional days 170.
  • Make March 21, 2014 a regular instructional day (previously scheduled as a staff development day).

This was a gain of 3 instructional days. We are still left with the task of making up 12 days.

50 Years of Excellence

by: C. Wheeler

Mr. Camic reminiscingFifty years ago, on September 3, 1963, Boyle County High School was born. Led by the first principal, Roy Camic, schools from four districts (Perryville, Junction, Parksville, Forkland) consolidated into one district-encompassing high school.

Many students were reluctant to embrace a new school, especially those who were close to graduation. The consolidation process was a challenge, requiring cooperation from faculty, staff, and students.

Amended Calendar Set

The Boyle County Board of Education was faced with the difficult task of amending the 2013-2014 calendar to make up snow days. Even though there is still pending legislation that may provide districts with relief, the board felt they could wait no longer to amend the calendar. The following changes were made to the calendar:

-First three days of Spring Break are now instructional (March 31, April 1 & 2)
-Memorial Day is now an instructional day
-Last Day for students is June 6

"With less than 8 days until spring break it is unfair to our students, parents, and staff to wait any longer," said Mike LaFavers. No matter where the days are made up (at the end of the calendar or by using planned holidays) changes put a burden on many.

Students Continue to Excel in AP Testing

Boyle County High School is proud to offer a substantial Advanced Placement program for their students. This program includes a total of 17 different AP courses, which is the most in the Advocate viewership area. Students have continued to rise to the challenge, and last year the highest number of students took the Advanced Placement Tests since the introduction of the program. Of these students, 151 earned AP credit with a score of 3 or higher.  These AP credits will count as completed college level credit at most universities. The percentage of passed tests has increased from only 51% to 65% since 2007 and we anticipate the number of students enrolling in AP classes and passing AP tests to continue increasing.
