Birthday Cutoff for Kindergarten Changed

Kindergarten childrenA change in the birthday eligibility cutoff for Kentucky kindergarteners will take effect in the 2017-18 school year. According to the Kentucky Department of Education, starting next fall, any child who turns 5-years-old on or before August 1 may enroll in full-day kindergarten. The change affects children statewide, according to the Kentucky Department of Education's website, which states, "Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, ...the entry date changes from October 1 to August 1.”
According to the Lincoln County Public School’s early entrance policy, parents may petition the board to allow their child to enter school earlier than permitted under statutory age requirements. Due to the change in the birthday eligibility cutoff, parents may request early-entrance screening if their child will turn 5-years-old between August 2 and October 1, 2017. In order to be accepted for early entry, children must exhibit high levels of academic and social/emotional aptitude on early childhood screeners/assessments.
Those who request early entry will be screened in April and May, and if the student meets the criteria, a recommendation will be made to the board of education by June 30 for the 2017-18 school year. A petition for early entrance testing must be made in writing to the superintendent prior to April 1 of the proposed entry school year. Please contact Bruce Smith, Director of Pupil Personnel, or Angela Cain, Director of Teaching and Learning, for further information. (606-365-2124)

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.

Non-Traditional Instruction Days Parent Survey Results

Thank you for completing the Lincoln County Public Schools’ Non-traditional Instruction (NTI) Days Parent Survey! The NTI program gives districts that miss school due to weather or other emergencies the opportunity to conduct school through virtual (technology) or other non-traditional means on days that the district would normally cancel school.  The district would then show evidence of student participation and student learning and would submit a request to the Kentucky Education Commissioner for approval.  If approved, students would not have to make up those days.  Our district would offer a blended approach of using technology and/or printed packets for students on NTI days.   

We had 1,329 parent surveys completed, representing more than 1,638 students. 402 surveys were completed online and 927 surveys were completed via paper and pencil.  90.32% of the respondents indicated that they think NTI Days would be a good option for Lincoln County Students.  92.30% of parents indicated that their students would not have problems participating in NTI Days.  Detailed results can be found by clicking here.

Kindergarten Registration 2016-17

The district-wide process for kindergarten registration has been revised.  To register a child, please pick up a registration packet between March 28, 2016, and April 15, 2016, at the elementary school where your child will attend kindergarten.  When picking up your registration packet, you will receive more information about scheduling a "Ready for K" screening visit at your child's school.  Late registrations will be accepted; however, we encourage you to register your child during the registration window of March 28, 2016, thru April 15, 2016, so your child can participate in the "Ready for K" screening visit.  Children who are currently enrolled in the Lincoln County Preschool / Head Start program do not need to register.


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.

 


Parent Training - Special Education Department

Life is full of transitions and one of the more remarkable ones occurs when we get ready to leave high school and go out in the world as young adults. When the student has a disability, it’s especially helpful to plan ahead for that transition. In this workshop, we will discuss life after high school, discover resources that are available to families and go over the process of  applying for a Medicaid Waiver. This workshop is appropriate for parents of elementary, middle, and high school students, as information related to waivers applies to all age groups.

LINCOLN COUNTY WEATHER RELATED PLANS ~ 2017 Reminder

Due to inclement weather (snow, ice, flooding, etc.) occasional changes may be required in school transportation, attendance times, and dates. Inclement weather requires close cooperation and good communications between home and school so that the quality of education is not reduced and the safety and welfare of children are maintained. In the case that changes are made, a School Messenger call will be made. Possible changes include: An early release, cancellation, or one of the three plans-one-hour delay, two-hour delay, or plan B is implemented.

The Kentucky Department of Education allows up to five hours for emergencies that can be forgiven and do not have to be made up each year. Lincoln County Public Schools (LCPS) may choose to delay the opening of schools by one-or-two hour increments as opposed to closing the entire day. The Board of Education may use one of the following alternative operational plans in an effort to reduce the number of days missed due to inclement weather.

Lincoln County “Patriot Days”

Lincoln County Schools has been granted state permission to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction “(NTI) days during the 2016-2017 school year.  We will call these Patriot Days!  This plan will allow meaningful learning to take place when conditions prevent school from being in session. A Patriot Day will count as an instructional day, and if approved by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE), will not have to be made up at the end of the school year.

WHAT IS A NON-TRADITIONAL INSTRUCTION DAY (PATRIOT DAY)?

A non-traditional instruction day (Patriot Day) is a district declared day when learning and instruction will continue, yet students will not report to school.  Learning will take place using technology or conventional paper packets focusing on previously introduced content to enhance, remediate or enrich student skills.  All materials will be provided by your child’s teacher(s) and students are expected to return completed assignments to their teacher upon their return to school. Students who have difficulty completing the work on the actual Patriot Day will have up to one week from the actual Patriot Day to turn it in. Please note, not every school cancellation day will be a Patriot Day.  The School Messenger call will clearly indicate what type of cancellation day it will be.

School board is vital component of district progress Mr. Michael Rowe - Superintendent

Our community is blessed. We have a successful school system with incredibly engaged students in grades K-12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the men and women who make up the Lincoln County Board of Education. 

As superintendent, I am fortunate to regularly witness the selfless service of board members Tom Blankenship, Alan Hubble, Theresa Long, Yolanda Smith and Marvin Wilson.

Our school board members are citizens of Lincoln County – your friends and neighbors – with extraordinary dedication to our community and our children.

Each of the awardees―who hail from 14 different states―is a teacher leader who spends at least 50 percent of his or her time in a classroom setting. Crab Orchard’s grant award is $15,000.

District Calendar Update 2015-16

Thursday, April 14, the Lincoln County Board of Education voted to revise the school calendar and make the last day for students May 25.  This decision was in response to the provisions of HB 111, a recently passed statue which provided school districts “snow day relief.”  HB 111 removed the requirement of schools being in session 170 days and instead gave districts the option of counting accumulated instructional hours as the determinant of a full instructional year. 

Lincoln County students attend school for 6 1/2 hours every day.  This added instruction enables the district to “bank” additional time.  As a result, the revised calendar of 164 days equals 1,066 instructional hours, exceeding the state requirement of 1, 062. 

Please hover over the District Calendars link on the left to access the revised calendar.


Spring Break ~ April 5 - 8, 2016

National School Breakfast Week!!!

Getting More Students to Begin Their Day with Breakfast

“Wake Up to School Breakfast” Encourages Lincoln County Families to Choose Breakfast at School

 

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, the US Department of Agriculture data shows that more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias.  To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, the Lincoln County Schools will participate in the National School Breakfast Week during March 7-11, 2016.

 

The National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) campaign theme, “Wake Up to School Breakfast”, reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy, energizing start to the day for students. Students will be encouraged to “Wake Up” their minds and bodies during March 7-11 with special menus, decorations, cafeteria events, and more.
