• Superintendent addresses clown threat issue

     The Following is a letter distributed on Thursday, via email, from Bullitt County Public Schools superintendent Keith Davis:

    Dear BCPS Community,

  • Computer coding new art at CES

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — A new foreign language is being taught in elementary schools: the language of computer programming. 

    Coding is the language designers use to instruct a computer program what to do. Through coding, a video game character knows when to jump or when to turn the corner. Coding is also used in website design. A link changes colors when clicked or a drop down menu drops when the mouse hovers over it because of the code written behind it.

        Bullitt Central High School’s football team, in collaboration with the Shepherdsville Elementary Family Resource Center, began the Cougar Buddies program with Shepherdsville students.
