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.

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
