Back to School in Bullitt County

By The Staff

SHEPHERDSVILLE - As the clock ticks quickly, superintendent Keith Davis is really hoping it was already Wednesday.

Over the weekend and on Monday, workers with the Bullitt County Public School System and with various contractors are busy... very busy.

With two new schools to open and several others undergoing major renovations, Davis said it would be down to the wire but classes will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 11.

“We’ll be open for classes,” said Davis. “We’ll be ready and the schools will be safe for our students and staff.”

Facing a year of transition as the CATS test is no more, Bullitt County is still in search of reaching its mission to be the best district in Kentucky.

“We have to learn how to help kids learn,” said Davis. “We have to continue to believe that every child can learn and we must find the way to help them accomplish that.”

In the classroom, the 12,000-plus students will see a new form of assessment - Measures of Academic Progress. With the system, Davis said it would be more sharper information on the progress of each student.

Davis said customer service would be a point of emphasis in the school buildings.

Parents with any questions prior to the opening day should contact their individual schools. Look on-line at www.pioneernews.net under the special section to find a lot of Back to School information in The Pioneer News’ annual section.
