Feedback Needed from Parents and Volunteers

As part of our district’s Future Ready Action Plan development, we are working to gain valuable feedback from various groups. Your feedback will help us make districtwide planning decisions moving forward. We are currently looking for your feedback in the area of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. We ask that you take 30 minutes to share your insight by completing the survey link below by January 31. Your feedback will be curated with the feedback from all other members of the group and consolidated into a report that provides our district with readiness levels, a gap analysis, and strategies to support our district team moving forward.

To complete the assessment, please click on the link below:


Please complete the brief survey by January 31 so that we can compile the feedback shortly thereafter. Your feedback will be combined with that from others in the group to create a comprehensive report. No feedback is tied back to an individual user.

Your honest feedback is a key to our future planning and implementation. Thank you for your time and for supporting the students of our district as part of our planning process moving forward.

If you have any questions, please contact Ed Bonhaus at ed.bonhaus@kenton.kyschools.us.

Inclement Weather Information

In anticipation of inclement weather, please be sure to update our office with any changes to your phone numbers in order to receive our Bright Arrow notification calls. You may also wish to subscribe to Twitter @KCSD to get instant notification of closures and delays, and install the new Kenton County School District App on your smart phone. You can also sign up for Piner’s Twitter feed (@PinerPrincipal), our Facebook page, and our Sangha notification program for school updates.  Just contact your child’s teacher if you need further information on how to sign up for any of these services.

Important Note About Attendance

Please remember that your child may have up to 9 parent notes and 10 doctors’ notes before absences become unexcused. After 3 unexcused absences, we must begin the truancy procedures as outlined by the Kenton County School District. Signing your child out early or coming in tardy will use parent notes, so please consider carefully whether your child is truly ill and must miss a day of school.

KCSD Inclement Weather Policy

By Terri Cox-Cruey, Ed. D., Superintendent of Kenton County Schools

The winter can be challenging to our instructional rhythm and overall school operations. It is particularly frustrating when events, scheduled well in advance, have to be canceled or postponed. While scheduling and rescheduling events during inclement weather is challenging, our current policy is to work with each school based on their circumstances to make sure the activity takes place for our students. Positive, proactive communication is necessary for all participants as we work together to disseminate information district-wide. I want to take this time to review how decisions are made when weather takes precedent.

Alert: Snow Removal Maintenance Changes for Some Kenton County Roads
