Letter From The Superintendent: Planning Ahead logo

The injunction ordered against Boone County Schools last week in the case Gillum vs. Boone County Schools has been dismissed.  In the meantime, the Kentucky legislature has passed HB 208 and it was signed into law by Governor Beshear last Thursday. The new law will permit all Kentucky public school districts to seek approval for virtual instruction if they are offering at least 2-days of in-person instruction per week.  Boone County Schools will continue with our ongoing efforts to move towards 5-days of in-person instruction per week and with the passing of HB 208 we are happy to be able to keep serving our students who have chosen virtual learning for the remainder of the school year.

Re-entry Plan For Boone County Schools (Updated 2/12) student at desk


The COVID-19 pandemic has presented our community with many complex challenges, including how we will safely educate our 21,000 students. The priority of safely and effectively educating our students must be balanced with the safety of our 3,600 employees and also the financial impact of the pandemic on jobs and our families.

While we cannot eliminate risks altogether, we believe that by following the state and federal guidance listed above we can together significantly reduce the risk of potentially spreading COVID-19 on our campuses. Doing so, however, will require a shared commitment by each of us to take care of ourselves, our families, and everyone in our schools.

United Way Supports 22 NKY Agencies United Way Supports 22 NKY Agencies

Dear NKY School District Leaders,


First, thank you for the tireless support you are offering to NKY families during this time.  I have been in contact with each of your districts (either via email or phone) and you are doing amazing work.  Thank you for being a safety net for so many.  And personally as a mother, your teachers are appreciated!    


Last month United Way of Greater Cincinnati partnered with Greater Cincinnati Foundation with the goal of raising $5 million dollars to support COVID relief efforts.  We have been successful in reaching and even surpassing our goal.  Almost immediately, United Way began reaching out to our community partners and identifying their needs for funding.  To date, we have distributed $600,000 in funding to 22 NKY agencies.  I could really use your assistance in sharing our community with your networks (links below).  United Way is stepping up and serving our community and I want everyone to know!


If you are aware of urgent funding needs, please send them my way.  I will personally contact the agency to better understand the need and submit the request to our funding committee.  I and here to support you and the needs of our community. 


Stay well,
