Campbell Co. School empowers students to think more about their own Safety

Campbell County Schools officials are using a grant of nearly $5 million to explore innovative ways to confront the lethal problem of school violence that have claimed the lives of students in places like Parkland, Florida. They are training students that were selected by their peers, whom are called student brokers, to talk about and teach how others how to stand up. The goal is for the student brokers to take a stand against bullying and to keep an eye out for potentially violent behavior.

Campbell Nationally Ranked – 9th time in 4 years

CAMPBELL COUNTY SCHOOLS – Campbell County School District learned this week that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking. CCHS was ranked as one of “America’s Most Challenging High Schools” by the Washington Post with Campbell County High School ranking 9th out of all public high schools in the State of Kentucky.  Schools who are national ranked are given an index score.   The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).

This is the 9th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years. (See rankings below).  The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments.

Campbell County Receives 8th National Ranking in 4 Years!

Campbell County School District learned this morning that Campbell County High School has received yet another national ranking! CCHS received a Silver ranking from U.S. News and World Report ranking CCHS 17th in the State of Kentucky and 1606 in the nation.  A three-step process determined the Best High Schools. The first two steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, a third step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

This is the 8th National Ranking for the NKY Campbell County School System in four years! The district is also classified as a Distinguished/Progressing District on Kentucky State Assessments. WAY TO GO CAMELS!

2nd grade students in Ms. Albers' Reading class had the opportunity to create a music video to John Fogerty's "Centerfield".  Students and staff have been using their new technology (ipads, and imovie) to create music videos for the morning news program.  Because 2nd graders were reading Ronald Morgan Goes to Bat, and because the Cincinnati Reds had such a great season, they decided on a baseball song.  The kids learned the lyrics and performed for the video which aired on the GLE morning news program on Friday.
Test Call

In an effort to ensure that all families receive the district phone calls regarding school closings and delays, a test call will be made on Wednesday, October 17th, beginning at 5:00pm.  If you do NOT receive a phone call, please call the office (635-2129), and we will make sure that you are added to the call list.

GLE students thank community heroes
 In honor of the 10th anniversary of 9-11 attacks, Grant's Lick 2nd and 3rd graders arranged to visit Southern Campbell Fire Dept., Campbell County Police Dept, Alexandria Police Dept, and Alexandria Fire Department to thank them for being our community's first responders.  Each of the second and third grade classes produced a book telling why our firefighters and police officers are heroes.  The students then gave each location apple pies provided by our parents.  In preparation for the trip each of our classes spent some time discussing 9-11 in an age appropriate way focusing on the heroic acts of firefighters and police officers.  One third grader made the connection that as people were running away from the towers, firefighters and police officers were running toward them.

This week, second grade students in Ms. Alber’s, Mrs. Augsback’s and Mrs. Pershing’s class are reading a story entitled Exploring Space with an Astronaut. Rather than just reading the story and dreaming about exploring space, students will get a first-hand account of how engineering and robotics are used in space exploration. Albers, Augsback and Pershing have arranged for their students to skype with engineer, Dean Eric Baumgartner of Ohio Northern University who helped to design the robotic arms on the rover that recently landed on Mars.

Campbell County School Receives 4.9 Million in Federal Funding for Comprehensive School Safety Work

Youth violence continues to be a significant concern in US schools, yet no study has focused on using networked school-aged peers to report and mitigate instances of bullying, peer conflict and/or school violence.  Campbell County School District was notified late last week that they have received 4.9 million dollars in funding from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to do just that.   The district pursued this competitive research grant in May of 2016 as part of the NIJ Comprehensive School Safety Initiative.  The goal of this initiative is to improve the safety of our nation’s schools and students through rigorous research that produces practical knowledge.

Mid-Month Update for Grant's Lick Elementary

It is time to create a new Strategic Plan for Campbell County Schools. We would like to invite you to provide input, helping us generate a new plan and a CCS GRADUATE PROFILE.

To gain input, we are holding community conversations at each of our elementary schools during the course of the next several months. Whether you are a business owner, community member, elementary, middle school or high school parent, grandparent or student, we encourage you to attend the most convenient one of these sessions to participate in a conversation, facilitated by Dr. Rust. We would also like to ask you to share this message with friends and family on your Facebook timeline to encourage participation. We really do want to hear from you!

KY Education Commissioner to Host Town Hall Meeting at NKU

Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt announced he will host a series of regional Town Hall Meetings across the Commonwealth to gather feedback from Kentuckians on how they define school success. The ideas and suggestions collected at the meetings will be used by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to inform the development of a new and more effective accountability system, something Pruitt has listed among his priorities since the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) hired him last fall.

The Town Hall Meetings are critical to this effort, and I hope parents, community members, teachers, students, legislators, business owners and concerned citizens will come to these meetings ready to share their thoughts and ideas,” he added. “Together we will create a new system that will ensure we do the very best for all our kids and provide them with a well-rounded education that will prepare them to be successful, productive citizens of the Commonwealth.”

Commissioner Pruitt will be at Northern Kentucky University on Monday, April 25th from 6:30pm - 8:00pm at the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union-Ballroom on Kenton Drive on Monday, April 25th .
