Corbin High School's Lauren Shackleford writes about how she is looking forward to reaching the new normal and moving beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Just because you know bad news is coming doesn’t make it easier to swallow and so it was this week when Gov. Andy Beshear recommended that in-person classes be suspended through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
COVID-19 is a global crisis. All of us have experienced a variety of emotions during this time. These feelings may continue for quite some time.
Fleming County's Sarah Davenport shares how COVID-19 impacted her senior year and she learned to cope with the changes.
Every day since the COVID-19 emergency began to take shape has brought new challenges for all of us who serve Kentucky’s students, and probably for all of you who are more intensively involved in your children’s education than ever before.
“I sure am looking forward to when we get back to normal!” is the refrain I hear from many educators. But I think the better question is why do we want to get back to normal?
It has been just over a month since Kentucky’s first case of COVID-19 was confirmed, and it has been the longest month of many of our lives. We had no idea when that announcement was made on March 6 how our lives were about to change and we still don’t know when they’ll return to something close to normal.
A lot of times I hear people referring to career and technical education and college prep classes as two separate things. When it comes down to it, all education is career and technical education.
It should have come as no surprise to any of us when Gov. Andy Beshear asked Kentucky’s school superintendents on Thursday to keep schools across the state closed for another two weeks. Both the Kentucky Department of Education and your child’s school were already preparing for this.
Our focus at KDE is now three-fold – Educate, Feed and Support. Our first priority is ensuring your children still receive their education through the use of Kentucky’s Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) Program.
