Resolution of School Board Commitment to Student Achievement
The Henry County Board of Education believes that improving student achievement is the most significant task of the school district. We affirm our intent and commitment tot he improvement of student learning by:
Openly evaluating data on student achievement indicators
Discussing processes that affect the instructional program
Examining the impact of the district's course of study on learning
Reviewing/revising district goals to focus on student progress
Striving to find methods to remove barriers to learning
Furthermore, this board commits to informing district staff, students, parents, and the community about student achievement in our schools and how our local data compares to common measurements in Kentucky, nationally and in relation to other comparable school districts.
Therefore, the Henry County Board of Education resolves that:
Every student in our district is expected to participate in school and to learn. Every employee of our public schools shall devote his or her work toward ensuring and enhancing students' learning success. The superintendent will recommend and implement initiatives and expenditures that clearly support and advance student learning success. The board will devote meeting time to topics that directly support and enhance student learning success and the interests of our community.
