East Bernstadt Board of Ed discuss traffic problems



When renovations are complete, the school will have an updated kitchen and cafeteria, new classrooms and office and gymnasium renovations.

Included in the renovations, the gymnasium will feature a middle school sized regulation basketball court.

Additionally, Jones reported that East Bernstadt Independent Schools made a big overall gain overall in the annual school report cards, a report released by the Kentucky Department of Education. 

The independent school district, which has classes from kindergarten to 8th Grade, earned an overall score of 57.1, up from the 46.5 they had in 2012. 

Additionally, they scored a 62 percentile rank which is considerably higher than last year’s 10.

Due to the significant improvements, the district was classified as a Needs Improvement/Progressing district.  They were also rewarded by the state as being known as a High Progress District.

Last year the district was classified as a Needs Improvement district and was recognized as a “Focus District.”

“I think it’s outstanding what you all have accomplished,” Sutton said after hearing Jones’ report on the school report card.  “It’s obvious that we have a wonderful staff.”

The district was recognized as the state winner of high attendance day.  The district, which had 100 percent attendance on the day of the contest, will be presented with a plaque and a $500 reward.

Board members say that the money will be used for a surprise for the students.
