Needing Volunteers for an 8th grade Reality Store on Nov. 6th

Looking for Volunteers for 8th grade Reality Store on Nov. 6th, during the school day 8:05 - 2:30
At Reality Store, 8th grade students get a glimpse of financial reality of being an adult. They are given a salary (based on their realistic job application - that will be coming home soon), and a number of children. They must take that salary and visit booths to determine what type of housing, clothes, food, groceries, utilities etc. they can afford. Our goal for them is to have a greater knowledge of what type of career they would like to have (and maybe find out that their 'dream job' won't pay the bills...) as an adult and will be able to set goals to achieve the right career. We want them to know the struggles we as parents face every month.
We are asking for your help to make the Reality Store a huge success for our students. It takes about 50+ volunteers to man the 19 booths.

If your schedule will only allow for part of a day, we can work around that. If you can help, please call or email Kathleen Sinkhorn. kathleen.sinkhorn@boyle.kyschools.us or by calling 236-4212 (the school number).

Volunteers will be served a light breakfast in the morning and lunch in between the sessions. There is nothing to prepare - We have everything you need once you get there. It is a fun program that you can SEE the light blubs going off in front of your eyes... "you mean we have to buy care insurance?" or  "child care is HOW MUCH??"

Thank You for considering this worth while program


Learning in Boyle County Won't Stop For Winter Weather

(FRANKFORT, KY) -- When the snow flies this winter, students in 13 Kentucky school districts will continue learning even when they aren’t at school.

The Kentucky Department of Education has approved waivers that allow the districts’ use of virtual or other non-traditional means of instruction when school is cancelled because of weather or another emergency. In most cases, students will participate in the snow day lessons online.

Check out the news story about Boyle's new non-traditional school days on the WKYT website

Boyle County Schools Pulls off the Three-Peat

For the third consecutive year, Boyle County Schools has ranked in the top 10 In Academic Achievement in Kentucky.   Superintendent Mike LaFavers was beaming with pride this morning when the Kentucky Department of Education released the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (KPREP) scores for all 173 districts in Kentucky.   “What our students have demonstrated with these scores is that hard work and doing the right thing every day does matter.  We have a talented staff, and they have committed to ensuring that all of our kids succeed.  These scores are evidence that our planning and attention to detail is making a difference,” said LaFavers.  The district has an overall 2013-14 score of 77.4, a ranking of 6th overall statewide, and the label of “District of Distinction” for the 2nd time in 3 years.  Only 5 districts in Kentucky have been rated “Districts of Distinction” in multiple years – Boyle County, Anchorage Independent, Ft. Thomas Highlands Independent, Murray Independent, and Walton-Verona Independent.

Boyle Mentioned in Two Recent Prichard Committee Posts

The Prichard Committee mentioned Boyle County Schools in their education blog this morning! We were also recently mentioned in an article written by the Prichard Committee highlighting MDC practices. The Prichard Committee is a group committed to promoting academic excellence in Kentucky. When the Committee first started, Kentucky was ranked very poorly in education. Years later, Kentucky is now recognized as a national leader in school improvement. Being recognized by this group is a huge honor.

New Gate Locking Schedule

With the addition of the new road to the main campus, there have been questions regarding the times that the gates from the new road are open. The gates on the Man O War Blvd extension will be opened at 7:00 am and will be closed at 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. These gates will also be opened during special events (football games, graduation) and during the weekends. When the gates are closed, the campus may be entered via the old entrance at Citation Drive. This is due to an agreement with the Boyle County Land Trust Members.
