Parent workshop set at BCHS
CANNONSBURG - A free workshop to explain changes in state education standards will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 at Boyd County High School.
The workshop, titled “What Parents and Communities Need to Know: Kentucky’s Core Academic Standards,” will help parents and community members support the revised student expectations and testing system.
Implementing the new system will help schools transition to a more rigorous education. The new standards focus on preparing students for college and careers at every stage of education.
Forward in the Fifth, the Prichard Committee and the Kentucky Parent Teacher Association are sponsoring the workshop.
The program includes a light meal and door prizes. Registration is required to ensure adequate seating and materials. Register at fif.org or by calling Norma Meek at (606) 928-4141.
Forward in the Fifth, a nonprofit organization and an affiliate of the Center for Rural Development, was formed in 1986 by U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers, R-5th, and other leaders to work to reverse low educational attainment levels in the Fifth Congressional District.
