PRIMARY DEPOSITORY FOR SIMPSON COUNTY SCHOOLS

The Simpson County Board of Education will accept sealed proposals on the following item: PRIMARY DEPOSITORY FOR SIMPSON COUNTY SCHOOLS

SKY FAME

The Southcentral Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (SKY FAME) is a partnership of regional manufacturers whose purpose is to implement a work-and-learn style program that will create a pipeline of highly skilled workers. The primary method to achieve this goal is through partnerships with local educational institutions to offer the Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program (AMT). With SKY FAME, students can dive into a challenging Advanced Manufacturing career while simultaneously earning a college degree, and the potential to graduate with zero student debt!

Email Migration

The purpose of this communication is to let you know that all districts throughout our state are changing email systems this year.  All 173 school districts have been under one major email umbrella provided by Microsoft (Office 365).  Moving forward, there will now be 173 email umbrellas with districts having much more local control.  This is good news! 

New Immunization Requirements

A recent amendment to the Kentucky Administrative Regulation on the immunization schedules for attending school added new immunization requirements for the school year beginning on or after July 1, 2018.

2018 Operation Preparation

The Vision of Simpson County Schools is to prepare our graduates for success in life!  An important part of our Life-Ready Vision is our students being prepared for college and careers upon graduation. To impact the college/career readiness of our students, we need your help in our Operation Preparation initiative.  Operation Preparation was started six years ago to bring community volunteers into our schools to encourage and advise 8th and 10th grade students on college and careers.  Kentucky’s current statewide college/career readiness rate is 65.6 percent. Last year, FSHS achieved a college/career readiness (CCR) rate of 85.9 percent, even with changes that set the bar even higher!  Our ultimate goal is to graduate 100 percent of our students meeting the college/career ready benchmarks.  According to the Center for Education and the Workforce, in the next 4-6 years, more than half the jobs in Kentucky and more than 60 percent of jobs nationwide will require postsecondary education (either a two-year or four-year degree). Most of the remaining jobs will require at least some training after high school. With a statewide student-to-counselor ratio of about 450:1, many school counselors are overloaded with the number of students to whom they must provide services.

2018-2019 District Calendar Feedback

It is time to get your feedback on our 2018-2019 School Calendar!  State statute now requires we utilize a calendar committee with specified membership including certified and classified staff, along with a board member, parents, and community members.  Our calendar committee has met and looked at a calendar with corresponding dates to this year and past years.  Ultimately, the Simpson County Board of Education is responsible for setting the school calendar and we want your input.  The link below will allow you to access a short survey on the calendar.  Additionally, I have attached a draft calendar for your review.
