The Kentucky Department of Education has just released the 2016 K-PREP assessment scores. Overall, the Edmonson County School District improved more than five points from 2015 to 2016 and was labeled as a Distinguished School District for the first time ever.
“It is so exciting to see our test scores reflect the great things that are happening in our district," said Carol Stice, Supervisor of Instruction/District Assessment Coordinator. "Every school is filled with administrators, teachers, and staff that work incredibly hard day in and day out. These scores reflect the progress we are making by focusing on what will help our students achieve, not only in the classroom, but in life."
The overall categories for local schools are: Edmonson County High School – Distinguished, Edmonson County Middle School – Proficient, Edmonson County 5/6 Center - Distinguished/Progressing/School of Distinction/High Progress School, Kyrock Elementary – Distinguished, South Edmonson Elementary - Needs Improvement.
Superintendent of Edmonson County Schools, Patrick Waddell, shared his pride for all the schools in the district. "They’ve worked hard to provide a quality education for our students and these scores validate that effort," he said. "We’re also very excited that our district as a whole has received a Distinguished classification. This isn’t easy to achieve, and it’s definitely been a district-wide goal. It’s always encouraging to see hard work pay off and I believe Edmonson County is blessed to have the hardest working teachers and staff around.”
