ACHS grad is Principal of 2021 Blue Ribbon School
Congratulations to Adair County native Karla Yarberry Davis who is principal of award-winning Greathouse-Shryock Elementary School in Louisville, just named a 2021 National Blue Ribbon School for the second time.
The coveted National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.
Davis described the honor as more meaningful coming after on the heels of one of the most challenging years for educators and students.
The U.S. Department of Education judges schools in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:
* Exemplary High-Performing Schools are among their state's highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.
* Exemplary Achievement Gap-Closing Schools are among their state's highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school's student groups and all students.
School data from 2019 showed 92% reading and math proficiency among the over 500 students at Greathouse. It was among only 325 public and private elementary, middle and high schools in the nation recognized this year for overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
She will join school leaders accepting the award in National Harbor, Maryland, on November 5. Three other schools awarded this honor in Kentucky were Anchorage, Ft. Mitchell, and Gamaliel in southern Monroe County.
Principal Davis can be reached at email@example.com - or send congratulations messages to her through her proud parents, Curt and Janice Yarberry.
