Unpredictable winter weather may necessitate Boone County Schools to alter daily schedules or routines within the district. To be prepared please make sure your child’s school has up-to-date phone numbers and emergency contacts for your family. Also, have child-care arrangements already in place should the need arise to close school early, delay or cancel school.
The Boone County Schools continually strive to provide a world class education to all students and to exceed in both traditional and non-traditional measures of accountability. The Kentucky Department of Education has publicly released state test scores from last spring. These results are being shared on our district and school report cards.
This new 5-year strategic plan is the result of extensive collaboration, input, and analysis from stakeholders across our district that include parents, students, teachers and school administrators, school board members, business and community members, faith leaders, and post-secondary education leaders.
Please join us for this two-day event, Friday, February 23rd, from 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm, and Saturday, February 24th, from 8:00 am - 1:30 pm. Both days will include a meal, a keynote speaker, and various workshops and seminars, led by national, state and local experts in the areas of youth mental health.
The Safety Tipline, Online Prevention or S.T.O.P.! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.
The Boone County School District strives daily to ensure the safety of your children in everything we do. In our continued efforts, we are excited to begin the rollout of the new ZPass student ridership program. This tool will aid the school district and parents in quickly locating students and will provide transportation with real time rosters for each bus. This program will be offered to all elementary school students and students grades 6- 12 who use special transportation.
Boone County Schools are committed to ensuring every student is college, career and life ready. As the third largest in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the District consists of 15 elementary schools, 6 middle schools and four high schools. There are nearly 20,000 students, 1,200 who are English Language Learners, speaking over 50 languages in Boone County Schools.
The 21st century skills of critical thinking and communication are intentionally planned for and taught in Boone County. Additionally, teachers provide opportunities for all students to be challenged within their zone of proximal development. Our schools create project/problem/passion based learning experiences for students to apply core knowledge, concepts and 21st century skills, within and across disciplines, to solve real-world problems.
In order to develop the 21st skills necessary to be successful in the future workplace, the Boone County Schools is committed to empowering all students by developing in each of them strong character, student leadership, hope, and wellbeing.
