Mrs. Alice Curry, the Computer Technology teacher at Adair County Elementary School (ACES), received the greatest reward for her hard work and dedication when forty-four of her 6th grade students were recognized during the awards ceremony held at ACES Monday, May 20, 2013 for their accomplishments in the 21st Century Skills Assessment. Forty-two students received proficient while two individuals received advanced.


The purpose of the 21st Century Skills Assessment is to determine student's technology literacy in grades 6, 8, and 12. The test is aligned with national technology standards which Kentucky's Student Technology standards are based upon. The assessment evaluates a students' knowledge, creativity, collaboration, information fluency, knowledge of safe and legal use of the technology, as well as, trouble shooting systems and applications.

The Adair County School System evaluates the technology skills of all 6th, 8th, and 12th grade students yearly. The scores from the 8th and 12th grade students are reported annually to the Kentucky Department of Education.

Sixth grade students are given the 8th grade test to familiarize them with the format as well as gathering data which is used to establish teaching goals to ensure students reach a minimum of proficiency in the area of technology literacy by the time the students leave 8th grade.

Thanks to Mrs. Curry's outstanding teaching, dedication, and hard work twenty-five percent of the 6th graders who were assessed have already meet the technology literacy requirements for 8th grade students.

Technology Director Carla Perkins was ecstatic about this year's 6th graders accomplishments and stated: "I am so proud of the 6th grade students who scored Proficient or Advanced on the 21st Century Skills Assessment. Their success is a direct reflection of the instruction they receive from Ms. Alice Curry, computer lab teacher at Adair County Elementary School."

The students receiving proficient were: Sean Johnson, Sydney Slaven, Devin Richard, Leah Brown, Natalie Taylor, Kelsey Redford, Kaitlyn Janes, Rachel Parrish, Gage Hodges, Alex Lara, Samuel Willis, Anthony Sapp, Kyron Burton, Jake Brockman, Treyton Steele, Tyler Burton, Christopher Stuchell, Anna Wilson, Bobby Willis, Nicholas Anderson, Sherica Burton, Kendyl Hardin, Jailyn Janes, Ashley Owens, Jacob Owens, Will Feese, Baylor Giles, Cameron Grant, Dylan Sneed, Daezon Scholl, Trevor Smith, Hannah Hoots, Kacie Karnes, Ali Villela, Cassie England, Jose Foster, Christina Kessinger, Carisma Greer, Emma Cockerham, and Josh Ward. The two students who received advanced were: Jaiden Taylor and Conner Has. - Shamarie Claiborne yes
