Note from the Superintendent ~ "Central Office" changes to "Student Support Center"

In an effort to provide a more positive communication platform for all stakeholders, we would like to abolish the negative connotations that the name “Central Office” has for many people.

Starting August 15, 2016, the name “Central Office” will no longer be used in the Lincoln County Schools. Our new name is “Student Support Center”. Districts generally do not see districtwide improvements in teaching and learning without substantial engagement by a Student Support Center in helping all schools build their capacity for improvement. Student Support Centers and the people who work in them are not simply part of the background noise in school improvement. Rather, Student Support Center staff exercise essential leadership, in partnership with school leaders, to build capacity throughout the district for teaching and learning improvements. We are here for the students and our mission is to provide the dedication and support necessary to transform into a district of distinction.

Bus Safety Reminders for Back to School

In Lincoln County, students and buses will be on the roads starting as early as 6:00 a.m. and returning home well into the afternoon.

It can be tempting to pass a school bus when you’re running late for work. The National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services, a group that focuses on school transportation safety, estimates nearly 13 million drivers will illegally pass stopped school buses during the school year. That estimate is based on a single-day survey conducted in 29 states between March and May each year. In 2014, the survey recorded 97,000 instances of illegal passes.

Passing a school bus that is stopped with its stop arm extended is not only illegal, but it is dangerous.

Please visit our Transportation & School Safety Page for more information about bus safety and keeping our students safe.
