The Lyon County Board of Education believes that improvement of student achievement is the most significant task of the school district. We affirm our intent and commitment to the improvement of student learning by:
- Openly evaluating data on student achievement indicators;
- Discussing processes that affect the instructional program;
- Examining the impact of the district's course of study on learning;
- Reviewing/revising district goals to focus on student progress;
- Striving to find methods to remove barriers to learning.
Furthermore, this board commits to informing district staff, students, parents, & the community about student achievement in our schools & how our local data compares to common measurements in Kentucky, nationally, & with relation to other comparable school districts.
Therefore, the Lyon County Board of Education resolves that:
Each student in our district is expected to participate in school for the ultimate purpose of academic scholarship; every employee of our public school shall devote his/her work toward ensuring and enhancing students' learning success; the superintendent will recommend and implement initiatives and expenditures that clearly support and advance student learning success; the board will devote meeting time to topics that directly support and enhance student learning success and the interests of our community.
Regularly scheduled meetings of the Lyon County Board of Education are held on the third Monday night of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the District Conference Center. Any changes in the regularly scheduled time will be made public through news media announcements and on the district’s website.
Special meetings are called when necessary. Notification of any special meetings will also be made public through the website and news media announcements when possible. All meetings are open to the public.
