Math Design Collaborative Improving Math and 21st Century Skills

For several years, Boyle County Schools has been in the forefront of new developments in education, using many innovative instructional strategies to further improve student growth. One such strategy being used in 4th-12th grade classrooms comes from the Math Design Collaborative, a joint effort between the district, the Kentucky Department of Education, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. MDC structures are used to teach the Common Core math standards, as well as the 8 mathematical practices outlined in the standards. These practices include abstract reasoning, perseverance, and constructing and critiquing arguments. Assistant Superintendent, David Young, explains how MDC has been incorporated into the Boyle County evaluation system in an effort to measure skill growth in students: “Math Design Collaborative units, along with Literacy Design Collaborative and Project Based units, have been built into the Deeper Learning segment of PGES (the evaluation system) as a lens through which we see 21st Century Skill Growth in students. As a result, our students are learning how to communicate, problem solve, and think critically in mathematical settings – skills which will pay huge dividends for them in their lives.”

New Wind Chill School Closing Guidelines

During the winter months, there are several factors that play into school delays and closings. One important factor is wind chill. Boyle County Schools will be monitoring the National Weather Service to determine when school should be closed, or if the start time should be delayed. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service in regards to wind chill. This may be either a Wind Chill Advisory or a Wind Chill Warning. 

Wind Chill Advisory indicates that the wind chill is between -10 and -24 degrees and wind speed is atleast 10 MPH. 

Wind Chill Warning indicates that the wind chill is -25 degrees or below and that the wind speed is atleast 10 MPH.

In the event that there is a Wind Chill Warning for the Boyle County area for the time the school day begins, we will close schools. This decision will likely be made the morning of the day in question, as it is difficult to predict wind chill in advance.

If there is a Wind Chill Advisory, schools will likely remain open unless there are bus fleet issues or mechanical problems in the school buildings. This will be assessed by 6:00 am. 

As always, the safety of our staff and students is our top priority when making the decision to delay or close school.

This summer our staff participated in professional development training to become a Leader in Me school.   LIM schools focus on developing the 7 Habits of Healthy Kids.  Our goal is to “communicate each child’s worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves (Stephen Covey).”  Throughout the school year, your child will be learning, practicing and developing the seven habits.  

Habit 1:  Be Proactive

Habit 2:  Begin With the End in Mind

Habit 3:  Put First Things First

Habit 4:  Think Win-Win

Habit 5:  Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Habit 6:  Synergize
