Adair County School Board July 2019 - Report

By Linda Waggener

Adair County Board of Education Chair Lisa Burton (Division 3) brought the July meeting to order and gave a warm welcome to everyone.

In the Superintendent's report, Dr. Pamela Stevens reminded everyone that opening day for the 2019-2020 school year comes up in just two weeks. On August 7th all employees of the Adair County School District, plus Board Members and guests are asked to be present at the Adair County High School gymnasium at 7:30amCT for Opening Assembly.

Dr. Stephens said, "guest speaker Dr. Carl Hurley will start the year off with a rousing and upbeat message." He is a former Eastern Kentucky University professor, nationally known as a comedian and lecturer - "and if you've never heard him, you'll want to come," she said.



On Thursday, August 8th, busses will run starting the first regular school day.

ACHS student Maggie Young was honored for her accomplishments during summer break. She was accepted at three prestigious academies for students interested in military service and was able to attend two of them in June. She was accompanied at the meeting by her parents, Ann and Toby Young.

Maggie said she went to West Point Academy the first week of June and it was "rough, to say the least - classes, early mornings, lots of yelling and activity." The third week of June, she went to Air Force Academy which was not quite as hard as West Point.

She met a lot of good people at both and said she gained enough experience in the two sessions to firm up her decision to bypass military academies and go to the University of Kentucky after graduation next year.

Seniors this school year must meet more and tougher requirements in order to graduate. That means, according to Academic Dean Phyllis Curry, that the Kentucky Department of Education has placed new requirements that must be met by law that requires harder work for students, especially in the areas of math and reading.

The Adair County School Board meets at 6pmCT, each third Thursday, at the Board Conference Room, lower level, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY. The School Board phone number 270 384-2476.
