Non-Traditional School Day Feedback

With our first Non-Traditional School Day in the books, we would love feedback from students, parents, and teachers so that we can improve our Non-Traditional Days in the future. Because this is an innovative new approach to dealing with snow days, we anticipate that there will be a few issues to be worked out, and we thank everyone for their patience. From what we have seen thus far, we are very pleased with the participation and effort put in by our students, parents, and staff. Keep up the good work!

Math Design Collaborative Improving Math and 21st Century Skills

For several years, Boyle County Schools has been in the forefront of new developments in education, using many innovative instructional strategies to further improve student growth. One such strategy being used in 4th-12th grade classrooms comes from the Math Design Collaborative, a joint effort between the district, the Kentucky Department of Education, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. MDC structures are used to teach the Common Core math standards, as well as the 8 mathematical practices outlined in the standards. These practices include abstract reasoning, perseverance, and constructing and critiquing arguments. Assistant Superintendent, David Young, explains how MDC has been incorporated into the Boyle County evaluation system in an effort to measure skill growth in students: “Math Design Collaborative units, along with Literacy Design Collaborative and Project Based units, have been built into the Deeper Learning segment of PGES (the evaluation system) as a lens through which we see 21st Century Skill Growth in students. As a result, our students are learning how to communicate, problem solve, and think critically in mathematical settings – skills which will pay huge dividends for them in their lives.”

New Wind Chill School Closing Guidelines

During the winter months, there are several factors that play into school delays and closings. One important factor is wind chill. Boyle County Schools will be monitoring the National Weather Service to determine when school should be closed, or if the start time should be delayed. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service in regards to wind chill. This may be either a Wind Chill Advisory or a Wind Chill Warning. 

Wind Chill Advisory indicates that the wind chill is between -10 and -24 degrees and wind speed is atleast 10 MPH. 

Wind Chill Warning indicates that the wind chill is -25 degrees or below and that the wind speed is atleast 10 MPH.

In the event that there is a Wind Chill Warning for the Boyle County area for the time the school day begins, we will close schools. This decision will likely be made the morning of the day in question, as it is difficult to predict wind chill in advance.

If there is a Wind Chill Advisory, schools will likely remain open unless there are bus fleet issues or mechanical problems in the school buildings. This will be assessed by 6:00 am. 

As always, the safety of our staff and students is our top priority when making the decision to delay or close school.

Non-Traditional Snow Day

Parents,

Boyle County has made an adjustment to when we will enact the first Non-Traditional Day.  For  grades K-3 and 4/5 students getting packets(hard copies), these will come home on January 20th inside a clear plastic folder. There will be 4 total packets inside.  Each packet will be labeled with the following:  Day 1-Blue, Day 2-Green, Day 3-Red, Day 4-Yellow. Please be aware that the first Snow Day after Jan. 20th , Boyle County will enact a Non-Traditional Day and Chris Holderman will do an all call.  Students with packets will work on Day 1-Blue and those 4/5 students with technology only will work from Edmodo Accounts. For 4/5 parents who chose both(hard copy & technology), please use which version works best for you.

Thank you,

Bernice Bates
