     It is already January and we are earnestly preparing for the next school year.

    Even in a “normal” school district, there a lot of things that must happen between January and August.

    I’m happy to say that BCPS is anything but a normal school district.

    We are fortunate to have a crop of educational leaders and teachers in this district who are never satisfied with the status quo.

  • Lady Eagles come up just short to Ballard

     ELIZABETHTOWN – It wasn’t a win and it snapped the team’s ten game winning streak by the North Bullitt Lady Eagles, but the green and gold put forth another solid effort on Friday in a 70-60 loss to Ballard in the second game of the Bluegrass Cellular New Years Classic at Central Hardin High School.

    The event, a one-day ‘showcase’ of games, sort of mistimed this game as it was played at 3 p.m. on a Friday afternoon. Ballard came into the game ranked fifth in the state while North Bullitt was riding that 10-game winning streak.
