Special Populations


In The Kenton County School District, we believe that ALL children can learn at high levels regardless of their ethnicity, ability, gender, socio-economic status, native language, or whether they have a disability.  If any student in any class is not performing according to the state’s high standards and expectations, an achievement gap exists.  Reducing the achievement gap for these special populations is a necessity if all students are to reach proficiency.  There can be no excuses for failure, only reasons for student success in The Kenton County School District.

Whatever your role in the school or community, you can help ALL children achieve at high levels.  Family members can impact how the student learns and interacts in the school environment by doing the following:

• Expect Everyone to Read
• Expect Hard Work
• Expect  Rigorous Standards
• Expect Learning to be a Round-the-Clock Endeavour
