We also provide a full day of Kindergarten to help meet the student's needs.Our schools are located across the various communities within our county lines that reach from the Fourmile Community to Red Bird to Page to the Frakes community and even extends to the city of Middlesboro which is located on the Tennessee/Virginia border.Our district is working diligently to produce college and career ready students.
How We Ensure Educational Equity:Our district ensures educational equity by implementing a variety of learning experiences. Formative assessment and higher order thinking strategies are examples of the many research based practices utilized in every content area and at every grade level. Each school has implemented a Response to Intervention Plan which targets specific instructional support for struggling students and have revamped their daily schedules in order to do this during the school day as well as after school activities. Finally, all schools use collaboration strategies and educational software to ensure each student is provided access to the general curriculum. These strategies, techniques, and software programs benefit ALL students.
