iLearn@home Info 2016-2017 iLearn@home

In the Fall of 2014, the Kentucky Department of Education approved waivers that allowed thirteen school districts to use non-traditional means of instruction when school is cancelled because of weather or another emergency.  For 2015-16, the program was been expanded to include additional districts.  The Barren County School District was selected last year as one of thirty-one new districts to participate in this waiver program.   We are pleased to announce that Barren County was approved for 2016-2017 along with 71 other school districts to look at instruction on snow days (or other days that school would not be in session) differently.

The Barren County Schools have a long history of innovation and excellence, and the Non-Traditional Instruction    Program was a natural connection to all the forward-thinking initiatives we have in place.  Under the provisions of the waiver, a district may count up to TEN non-traditional instruction days as regular attendance days in its school calendar and not have to make them up.  Barren County Schools will likely never need all TEN days for non-traditional instruction, so our current plans are to prepare for up to five days for 2nd semester of 2016-17, if needed.   The Barren County Schools will be utilizing the first FIVE weather related closing days, as iLearn@home days. 

At the end of this month, Barren County Middle School students will receive the five days of instruction from their teachers.  It is suggested that when students bring these lessons home that they be kept in a safe place until the announcement of the district designated "iLearn@Home Day".

BCMS Named a "Distinguished" School Way to Go!

Barren County Middle School was recently named a Distinguished/Progressing/Focus school by the Kentucky Department of Education.  BCMS increased their scores from a 59.2 to 71.1 “Distinguished” rating and earned a spot in the top one-third of middle schools across the state.

We are so proud of our students for all of their hard work.  We are incredibly grateful for a staff that works tirelessly to make this middle school experience an extraordinary one.

This achievement and many others would not be possible without the support and dedication of everyone who makes up the BCMS family. 

To our students, staff members, district staff, parents and community members, we say “Thank you.”  We are truly blessed.
