Academic Dean Curry: On AC District's new academic status

'It finally dawned on all of us that if we were to get to proficiency, we had to just do it ourselves. There was no magic bullet, no program, no person who could come in and get us to our target.' - Adair County Schools Academic Dean Phyllis Curry

Statement from Phyllis Curry

Congratulations to all our students, faculty and staff for making Adair County a Proficient/Progressing/High Progress district for the first ever under any accountability system.

All schools in Adair County are Proficient/Progressing-another first. Some of you have been here since the beginning of this accountability journey and remember the eight years we were given state assistance because we were under some sort of corrective action plan from the state.


It finally dawned on all of us that if we were to get to proficiency, we had to just do it ourselves. There was no magic bullet, no program, no person who could come in and get us to our target.

So, you rolled up your sleeves and went to work. Now, the results of that work have become evident.

To those of you who have not been here for the whole journey, I challenge you to help us get to the next level, whatever that may be under the new accountability system.

Please accept my heartfelt thanks for all your hard work and your dedication to the students of Adair County.

- Phyllis Curry, Academic Dean
