Boone County Judge Executive Gary Moore recently swore in Karen Byrd and our newest board member, Cindy Young, to serve as members of the Boone County School Board.
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.
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 14 elementary schools, five 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.
