From the Superintendent's Desk

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!


"Upon the subject of education ... I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people may be engaged in."

- Abraham Lincoln

 

On behalf of Harrison County Schools, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2015-2016 school year. The start of a new school calendar is yet another opportunity to witness how everyone comes together and works so diligently to support the education of our children here in Harrison County. I applaud the efforts of our students, staff, parents and community partners as we work together tofocus on improving student learning in this district.

That focus has produced a 91.0% four-year graduation rate (the state average is 87.5%). Our average ACT composite score has increased from 19.1 to 19.4 (the state average is 19.4). The class of 2015 earned over $800,000 in scholarships and KEES (Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarships) money. As a district, Harrison County earned a Proficient rating from our latest KPREP scores. Great things are occurring in Harrison County Schools!

School supplies will be provided to every student in all four elementary schools and Harrison County Middle School. Our board of education recognizes the burden to families and hopes this helps to ease that burden. In keeping with that, new to our district this year is free breakfast and lunch for all preschool and elementary students.

Please know our staff in this district will continue to work hard for the children of Harrison County. We are striving to be a top district in this state. With the continued support of all our stakeholders, I know we will reach our goal!

I cordially invite you to visit our schools and see the wonderful things that are happening there. Our district employees go above and beyond to ensure the children of Harrison County have an appealing, clean, and safe environment for learning. We want you to share in our students' achievements throughout this school year. Our entire team - teachers, support staff, and administration - is excited for the educational opportunities that await our students this year!

As we embrace a new school year, there is excitement about the potential it holds. I am honored to be a part of the educational endeavors in Harrison County Schools. It is my privilege to work with such a great group of people who continually strive toward being a "Model of Opportunity" for every student in this district!

Please feel free to contact my office 859-234-7110, e-mail, or by mail at 308 Webster Avenue, Cynthiana, Kentucky 41031.

Mr. Andy Dotson, Superintendent
Harrison County Schools
