Message from the Superintendent
“The educator is like a good gardener, whose function is to make available healthy, fertile soil in which a young plant can grow strong roots.”
That quote from the late British economist and writer E. F. Schumacher is most appropriate as we begin the 2006-2007 school year in Warren County Public Schools. For years, our talented teachers, administrators and staff have worked diligently to prepare the soil from which many student successes can grow.
In many respects, we are already reaping the harvest of that work. You need look no further than our academic assessment results, which routinely place the Warren County Schools among Kentucky’s top-performing school districts. Recognition of that performance has come in many forms, including:
inclusion among the 21 (of 176) Kentucky school districts that received the “What Parents Want” designation from the educational research firm SchoolMatch.
identification for two consecutive years as an “outperforming” school district by Standard & Poor’s.
being home to one of only four Kentucky schools (Lost River Elementary) to earn No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon status in 2005.
Such accolades are particularly noteworthy when you consider that they are based on the performance of ALL students, not just the gifted or privileged. In Warren County Public Schools, our diversity — both economic and ethnic — is not viewed as an obstacle to achievement. Rather, it is viewed as one of the many assets that will lead our students to continued success.
As we begin a new school year, I’m optimistic about the prospects of not only continuing our past successes but improving upon them. Today, like never before, the Warren County school district is poised to move forward in ways that will assure that our students remain competitive with other students in our state, nation, and world. Evidence is all around us, from the new Alvaton Elementary School that will give students a modern, efficient learning environment second to none; to the new elementary school being built in Plano and the new high school/middle school combination planned near Rich Pond; and to the Warren County Area Technology Center opening in the Kentucky Tri-modal Transpark.
Less visible, but no less important, are the interactive ACTIVboard systems that have been installed in all our classrooms. These tools will allow teachers to utilize technology to enhance instruction and engage students in ways not possible before.
I believe you can see why I’m excited about starting another school year. If you, as parents and community members, visit and get involved in our schools, I promise you will be excited too. On behalf of the Warren County Board of Education and the Warren County Public Schools staff, I invite you to get involved; and I wish for all students a safe, challenging, and productive school year.
