THE STORIES WE TELL
We are pleased to announce our participation in the
Following an unprecedented global health crisis and resulting economic recession, Kentucky’s public schools find themselves under a microscope like never before. The value of our constitutionally mandated system faces severe scrutiny, while the financial and legislative means of providing quality public education nears a tipping point. As communities seek to rebuild and reestablish normalcy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must remind them of the significant roles their local public schools continue to play. We strongly believe the power of public schools is most evident in the stories we tell. Stories of hope and transformation. Stories of equity. Stories of inspiration. Stories of success.
Together, the Kentucky Association of Educational Cooperatives, Kentucky Association of School Administrators, Kentucky Association of School Superintendents and Kentucky School Boards Association are launching a collaborative effort to highlight the incalculable impact of Kentucky’s 171 public school districts on their local communities. Through the sharing of authentic success stories occurring within our schools, we will elevate dialogue on the importance of public education. From the powerful first-hand accounts of students, parents, educators, administrators, staff and other stakeholders, we will affirm the critical work of our Commonwealth’s common schools and the need for ongoing support.
