CIS honored at state capitol

Campbellsville Independent Schools was recently honored at the Kentucky state capitol.

 

Earlier in the 2016-2017 school year, the District was been named to an honor roll for improving its academic performance and expanding its AP course offerings at Campbellsville High School.

 

Campbellsville Independent Schools is one of eight Kentucky public school districts named to the Advanced Placement Honor Roll.

 

College Board, a nonprofit organization geared toward expanding access to higher education, announced the news in December.

 

Last month, Superintendent Mike Deaton and other administrators were recognized during a special ceremony at the state capitol.

 

Instructional Supervisor Kent Settle, Campbellsville High School Principal Kirby Smith, CHS Guidance Counselor Richard Dooley and AP student Zack Settle, a CHS senior, attended.

 

Kentucky Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt spoke to those attending the ceremony about the importance of AP classes, and congratulated the schools honored for realizing the importance of Advanced Placement courses.

 

Campbellsville Independent Schools was also recognized in the Senate and House of Representatives.

 

CIS and the other seven districts honored are among 433 public and private districts in the United States and Canada that have shown a commitment to expanding access to AP coursework while also improving student performance.

 

In addition to CIS, districts honored include Boyd, Daviess, Livingston, Muhlenberg and Pulaski counties and Dawson Springs and Fort Thomas independents.

 

To be named to the AP honor roll, districts similar in size to CIS must increase participation and/or access to AP classes by at least 11 percent, increase or maintain the percentage of AP exams taken by minority students and see an increase in student AP exam scores.

 

Data analyzed came from AP course enrollments and test scores from 2014 to 2016.

 

CHS formed a partnership with AdvanceKentucky in the 2015-2016 school year to expand its lineup of Advanced Placement course offerings. And, as a result, students who take the courses and then pass subsequent exams will receive cash rewards.

 

CHS is the only school in Taylor County to have such a partnership with AdvanceKentucky.

 

As a result of this partnership, many more AP courses were made available to students for the current school year. Courses include computer science, biology, English, U.S. history and much more.

 

At CHS, about 100 of the nearly 300 students are enrolled in at least one AP course.
