  • CCHS students make gains in CATS

    First, the bad news: Kentucky’s Council for Better Education, based on recent testing results, expressed grave concern that Kentucky’s schools are not on track to reach statewide proficiency goals by 2014, according to a press release from the council.

    Now, the good news: district-wide, Casey County school district’s adjusted index score improved to 79.4, an increase of 2.9 points over last year and 4.3 points higher than the year before.

    And even better news: Casey County High School is projected to meet the proficiency goal of 100 and above by 2014.

  • CCHS students to build another house

    Casey County High School students will once again help a low-income family realize the American dream of owning a home.

    The Casey County Board of Education, meeting Sept. 8 at Jones Park Elementary School, approved a request from teacher Garlen Whitis and his construction technology class to build during the school year a three-bedroom, two-bath home, at a cost of about $32,000. There is approximately $25,000 in a fund for this project.

  • Casey High juniors close to state average on mandatory ACT tests

    The results from last year’s ACT scores for high school juniors were released last week showing that Casey County High students’ scores are just under the state-wide average.

    Casey High’s average ACT composite was 17.6 while the state average ACT composite was 18.3.

    By law, all of Kentucky’s public school juniors now take the ACT, which assesses English, reading, mathematics and science and is scored on a scale of 1 to 36.

    In spring 2008, the first year of the mandatory testing, nearly 43,000 public school juniors took the ACT.
