Anderson County Schools Federal and State COVID-Relief Spending Informational Guide
Sitting in a meeting with the board at Anderson County Schools or watching the live stream of the meeting, one thing becomes perfectly clear: our school board makes decisions that are informed by feedback from all stakeholders and is focused primarily on what is best for the students in our district. Have we gotten parent input, student input, staff input, community input? Check. Will this new program help recover some of the student learning loss? Are we targeting intervention services? Will this decision provide clear and direct aid to students? Check, check, and check. This is the process Superintendent Mitchell and the rest of the board follow in all decisions to ensure that each choice is informed and focused on best practices for the students in our schools. So too with the choices of how our district should spend the federal and state relief funds provided for COVID-Relief.
 
Tech It Out: Moudy Recognized for Diversity Award in AP Computer Science
February 11th is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a celebration of female pioneers like Dr. Marie Curie, astronaut Judith Resnik, anthropologist Margaret Mead, environmentalist Rachel Carson, and computer science pioneer Grace Murray Hopper. However, according to recent statistics from the American Association of University Women, an organization developed in 1881 by a small group of women to encourage enrollment in all fields of higher education, women still only comprise 28% of careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). In our world today, those are also the very careers likely to be the most in-demand and highest-paying jobs of the future. Part of the way we close that gap is by attracting and retaining female students in the classrooms that will encourage growth in the STEM fields—something Anderson County High School AP Computer Science teacher, Todd Moudy, has successfully achieved.


 
No Matter the Weather, Anderson County Teachers and Students Stick Together
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky-- As the winter weather continues to impact our area, many of us recall fond childhood memories of snow days off of school spent lazing about our homes, sporadically going outside to play in the snow. When we would return to school, our teachers would spend time refreshing our memories on our most recent lessons before continuing on to new content. We all loved those snow days, but what we did not enjoy were the warm summer days tacked on to the end of the school year that had to be used as make-up days. The warm breeze wafting through the classroom window seemed to call louder than the snow ever did.
