ESL cohort

 

We celebrated the completion of the first cohort of classroom teachers that completed their English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement through a partnership with Northern Kentucky University.

The Board of Education entered into an agreement with NKU to provide full tuition for classroom teachers in our schools with the highest English Learner (EL) population to earn their ESL endorsement. This 5 class, 18 month online program provides the theoretical understanding and classroom application of how students develop a second/third language.

With an ever increasing population of EL students in Boone county, this partnership is critical so that we can build the capacity of our classroom teachers. The first cohort began in the fall of 2021 and completed in Dec 2022. The second cohort began in Fall of 2022 and has now completed their first class. The third cohort will begin in August of 2023. Applications will open March 15 and close April 30th. Stay tuned for information sessions or email Dr. Geniene Piche directly with any questions you may have.

She home schooled her daughter, who is now taking courses at Gateway Community College. Her son began preschool in the Boone County School District and is currently a junior at the Ignite Institute and a member of the Boone County Rebels swim team. With her children well established in their education, and the awareness of the school board’s impact on the educational curriculum of its students, she made the decision to become actively involved in the full range of responsibilities of the Boone County School Board. She accepts this responsibility with humility and the desire to make a meaningful contribution to the future education of our children in becoming wise and productive citizens of this country.  Mrs. Young is replacing Jia Pile in Division 4 of the district.

The Boone County Schools are fortunate to have an outstanding team of educators and mental health professionals trained to guide students through the toughest of life situations. The safety of our students and staff is our greatest priority when making district decisions.

Dear Boone County School District Community,

At last night’s school board meeting some concerns were expressed regarding safety at Conner High School. We understand and value your concerns.

The Boone County Schools are fortunate to have an outstanding team of educators and mental health professionals trained to guide students through the toughest of life situations. The safety of our students and staff is our greatest priority when making district decisions. We also partner in decision making with experienced legal counsel. With the assistance of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, our School Resource Officers, as well as the District Safety team, I can assure you all appropriate safety measures have been taken and are in place. Conner High School remains a safe school.

The Kentucky Constitution guarantees the right to a public education for every child without prejudice, and we are obligated to follow state law. If you have concerns regarding education law, we strongly encourage you to talk to your local state legislator. We will continue to be vigilant regarding these matters and we appreciate the community’s support.

Sincerely,

Matthew L. Turner

Superintendent of Schools
