  • Students selected for next bunch of BAMS participants

                   While the first cohort of students from the Bullitt Advanced Math and Science (BAMS) class prepares to enter college, a brand new set of eighth graders is preparing to make a major transition.

  • Marshall to address national college readiness issue

  • Lesson plans to have path to follow in schools

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If teachers are properly preparing lesson plans, members of the Bullitt County Public  School Board don't expect there to be a problem with a new policy implemented.
     After hearing some concerns about the proposed policy change, board members took no action in February.
     However, after hearing several teachers praise the importance of lesson plans and the lack of concern over the policy, board members voted 4-1, with Gary Wooldridge in opposition, to approve the proposal.

  • Mission won't change even without NCLB pressure

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Nothing will change in the classroom.
     The desire to make the Bullitt County Public School System the best in the state will not wane.
     But the dark cloud of meeting the federal No Child Left Behind mandate will no longer hang over the district or any other school system in the state of Kentucky.
     Kentucky was one of the states that recently received a waiver from meeting the federal mandates, which were set up to ensure that every child did have an opportunity to learn and be educated.

  • PAY DAY: Schools hoping discipline plans will pay off in better behavior

    What’s the best way to discipline a student?

    Many favor the traditional method of punishing students who misbehave, but as Jaime Goldsmith of Bullitt County Public Schools said, simply punishing a student may not always be the best recourse.

    And while some might argue that positive reinforcement can be counterproductive, local schools are seeing fewer behavioral incidents among students with Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports or PBIS.
