Pennies for Patients ensures that no child has to take on cancer alone.
As a science-based service-learning program, Pennies for Patients connects schools with local blood cancer patients, provides tangible life skills to participants, and allows students to see the impact they’re making in the lives of others.

The Rogers Explorers program is an intensive threeday, two night program focused on cultivating skills in leadership, technology, math, science, and community service. Explorers are able to actively participate in practical college courses, fine-tune leadership skills, and develop a network of friends and resources throughout our Southern and Eastern Kentucky region. Students from The Center’s 45-county service area may apply during their eighth-grade year. Click here for more information about selection criteria and application information.
Winter is upon us and we are ramping up for the weather. This year we are using a new call system called SendIt. It should work like our previous call system, but when the snow and Ice starts forming, if you don’t get a call, text, or email, please call our office and we will get you on the list.
I also want to take this opportunity to brag on our schools. Using the new STAR rating system from state assessment, our schools ranged from 3 to 5 stars. Pulaski County High and Southwestern High were both rated 4-stars and both with 98% graduation rates. We are also very proud to announce that Southern Elementary was rated a 5-star school. We have great learning opportunities in our schools, with our district as a whole ranked in the top 25% of the state.
The child nutrition and WIC reauthorization act of 2004 requires that districts that participate in the national school lunch program develop a local wellness plan for the schools in the district. Through Board approval the following plan and Report is adopted for the 2019-2020 school year. Personnel will be available on January 30, 2020 at 5:00 PM in the Board of Education meeting room for any public comment.
