For the third consecutive year, Boyle County Schools has ranked in the top 10 In Academic Achievement in Kentucky. Superintendent Mike LaFavers was beaming with pride this morning when the Kentucky Department of Education released the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (KPREP) scores for all 173 districts in Kentucky. “What our students have demonstrated with these scores is that hard work and doing the right thing every day does matter. We have a talented staff, and they have committed to ensuring that all of our kids succeed. These scores are evidence that our planning and attention to detail is making a difference,” said LaFavers. The district has an overall 2013-14 score of 77.4, a ranking of 6th overall statewide, and the label of “District of Distinction” for the 2nd time in 3 years. Only 5 districts in Kentucky have been rated “Districts of Distinction” in multiple years – Boyle County, Anchorage Independent, Ft. Thomas Highlands Independent, Murray Independent, and Walton-Verona Independent.
