It is the day before Thanksgiving and Christmas Break is right around the corner. On behalf of the Estill County Board of Education, I would like to wish everyone a wonderful and joyous Holiday Season. This has been an exciting fall semester and we have a lot to be thankful for and many areas to celebrate.
First, let me congratulate our students, teachers and principals for their marked improvement during this past springs’ assessment. We understand that there is work to be done, but we should celebrate remarkable improvement inacademic achievement. We have a fantastic District Leadership Team and the emphasis on continuous improvement across our district is paying big dividends.
Second, let me recognize all of our staff for their dedication to our students and families. Every day you continue to take PRIDE in your job performance and put forth your best effort in providing a safe and secure environment for our students. Let us continue to work together as a TEAM because Together Everyone Achieves More!
Finally, the Estill Springs Renovation and ECMS Roofing project is nearing completion. Planning for the new Estill County Area Technology Center and Estill County Bus Garage is wrapping up and construction should begin sometime this spring. These projects are just the beginning of our facility improvements totaling approximately $20 million over the next 2 to 4 years. A new district facility plan is being developed at this time and the last phase of our construction plan includes the final renovation of Estill County High School and our Athletic Facilities. Without the support of our parents and community, these improvement would not be possible.
I am thankful for the opportunity to work in this school district and blessed to be a part of a fantastic community. Let’s keep up the good work and continue to focus on our district vision, which ensures that “Every Child Succeeds”.
