  • Nearly all reach grad standards

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When the Bullitt County Public School Board announced a policy several years ago that students would not graduate unless they were college or career ready, there was some concerns.

    There was probably a lot of parents -- and students -- who didn’t realize the ramifications of such a requirement.

    Under the original decision, you would not walk the graduation line if you did not meet the college or career readiness standards. 

  • School budget to have 2% pay hikes included

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A new sanctioned high school sport will be funded for coaching positions in the upcoming academic year.

    The addition of bass fishing at each of the high schools will cost approximately $3,200 times three.

     ZONETON - Maybe middle school students would get into Shakespearian theatre more if it wasn’t for those long drives during field trips.

    Thanks to the Louisville-based Kentucky Shakespeare and its education program, the field trip can come to the schools.

    Zoneton Middle recently hosted artists Megan Massie and Tony Milder to the school, where they performed “Boy Meets Girl Meets Shakespeare,” a conglomerate of scenes from three plays including “Macbeth,” “The Tempest” and “Romeo and Juliet.”
