School Board finalizes 2020-2021 academic year

The Adair County School Board held its final meeting of the 2020-2021 school year Thursday, May 20, finalizing the business of one year and getting started on the new one coming up in August. Everything for this particular meeting revolved around the Honors and Awards banquet scheduled for right after the Board meeting, and then commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 21, 2021.

Superintendent Pamela Stephens gave compliments to Ms. Susan Peck in a letter received from the Gatton Academy at WKU by Ms. Peck's former student Elizabeth Cook, an exceptional Gatton graduate, who had written that Ms. Peck was the teacher who introduced her to a love of chemistry at ACHS.



Dr. Stephens said, "Elizabeth Cook is in conversation with Harvard University." She said Ms. Phyllis Curry reported that one student from Adair County High School has gone on to Princeton, but Elizabeth will be the first from ACHS if she goes to Harvard.

The School District's Facilities Plan Committee introduced their recommendations for the coming five years to the Board which calls for upgrades to the Primary Center, Elementary and High School buildings, and for the replacement of the Adair County middle school building.

The Board unanimously accepted their plan and it will be sent to the Kentucky State Board of Education for the next step.
