Principal's Message

2016-17

April

Only a short time remains in the 2016-2017 school year! This year has already seen amazing performances from our students in school, extracurriculars, and involvement throughout the community. In addition, attendees to our school events have been overwhelmingly positive and supportive of our students. People everywhere are talking about the high quality students at Scott High School. We are extremely proud of our students and the Scott community as a whole.  As we move toward spring break and graduation, please continue to support and push each student towards continued success. The remaining weeks of school consist of many important events for our students including End of Course Assessments, Advanced Placement testing, and graduation. Please watch announcements on our channels of communication for specifics.

 

Graduation

Graduation has been set for May 27, 2017 at 1:00 PM at the BB&T Arena at Northern Kentucky University. Please plan to attend this celebration for our graduating seniors.

 

EOC & AP Testing

Starting in the first week of May, many students will be taking AP tests.  This is an important test for many of our students who hope to receive college credit for performing well on this assessment.  Additionally in May, students who are completing courses in Biology, English II, US History, or Algebra II will be taking an end of course assessment.  The end-of-course assessment will count as 20% of each student’s grade in that class.  Please watch announcements for specific dates and help support our students and school through these events.

 

Scott Fest 2017-2018 Scheduled for Aug 19th

Scott Fest is a great way to get ready for the start of school.  Come out and take a tour of the school, dunk a teacher in the dunking booth, and learn about the great opportunities Scott High School has for you to get involved.  See you there.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for being a vital part of our community. This school year has been one marked with excellence from our students and I look forward to ending this year with even more successes to celebrate. Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help in any way. Thanks.

 

 


March

At this time, I would like to thank our community for being great working with our school while supporting our students and families. Our thoughts are with those experiencing struggles; we will continue to support our students through difficult times. We also look to encourage students as they prepare for the next phase in their life. We greatly appreciate all that each of you do for the students of Scott High School in assuring continued success. 

The ACT!

The juniors are scheduled to take the ACT on March 21st.  Please talk with our students in the coming weeks to encourage them to do their best.

 

Planning for the Future--Course Registration for 2017-2018

Dual Credit Classes at Scott

With an increased interest and participation in so many dual credit classes, we have also increased the on-campus opportunities for our students in 2017-2018.  The following dual credit options are available to Scott High School Students. These courses are taught by Scott High School teachers who are adjunct professors at local colleges:

  • English 101, 200
  • History 102, 103
  • German 101, 102, 201, 202
  • College Algebra
  • College Statistics

Additionally, there will be several dual credit classes based at Scott High School taught by college professors from the University.

 

As we finish out this trimester and head into the third and final part of our year, Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help in any way. Thanks.


 

January 8

 

We at Scott High School sincerely hope each of you had a relaxing and joyful holiday break. What a great fall semester we had at Scott High School -thank you parents, students, and staff! We continue to see vast student success this year and expect even more great things from the Scott Community as we move into the spring.

 

8th Grade Transitions

Scott High School principal’s advisory will be coordinating an 8th grade transition fair on January 27th. Middle school students will interact with many Scott High School students as they learn about educational pathway choices, sports teams, clubs, and other extra-curricular opportunities. Students will also be given a tour led by Scott High School students to show off our great facility as well as discuss future improvements. Look for many more transition activities to follow in the next few months as we prepare to welcome our newest Eagles.

 

Dual Credit Class at Scott High School

Many of the students at Scott High School take advantage of the opportunity to take college classes while in high school. These “dual credit classes” result in students getting credit for the class on their school transcript as well as their college transcript. This year as a result of our students’ hard work and initiative, we are expected to award over 400 dual credits to our students. Additionally, several of our Scott teachers have become adjunct college instructors as we continue to collaborate with multiple colleges. This allows us to offer more dual credit classes on campus. Pretty exciting to have such opportunities at Scott! Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

 

Planning for the Future

Spring is a crucial time for students as they continue to learn and grow in preparation for Spring assessments, like the ACT on March 21 and End of Course exams, and in planning for their future. For our seniors this means registering for College and/or transitioning to the work force. Many seniors will be preparing for College and Career Ready assessments including the ACT and/or KYOTE in addition to completing college applications. Underclassmen also will soon begin preparing to make decisions about course registration for the 2017-2018 school year. The decision to take challenging classes is important to assure student success in the future. Be on the lookout for multiple communications on all these topics in the coming weeks and months. Some important dates for you keep in mind:

  • Jan 11-Jan 12 Academy presentations to Freshmen and select Sophomores

  • Feb 15--Course information to students and available online

  • Feb 17--Applications for all academies due. Learn about application process to the Kenton County Academies of Innovation and Technology here.

  • Feb 27--Infinite Camps open for Course Requests

 

Open Enrollment and Tuition

It is the time of year when we accept applications for open enrollment and tuition status for 2017-2018. While we encourage application, please keep in mind that grades, discipline, attendance and space are taken into consideration on each application. All students at Scott are expected to perform well in the classroom, behave properly, and attend school regularly. If you have a child that would like to be considered for open enrollment or tuition at a different Kenton County school than which they are districted for the 2017-2018 school year, it is now time to fill out the Open Enrollment application. Students who are currently on Open or Tuition Enrollment should complete and turn in an application form by Jan. 13th to assure consideration for acceptance for next school year. These forms can be picked up in the front office and are due on or before January 13th.

 

Be sure to see the newsletter articles below on the following vital information if you have not yet:

  • Become College and Career Ready (CCR)

We are so excited going forward this new year. Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help in any way. Thanks.

You may have noticed recently that several parents at Scott High School have posted a ‘Shout Out’ about some of our awesome teachers at Scott.  A ‘Shout Out’ is simple way of showing appreciation for someone in our Scott Community that has done something positive for our Scott Students.   If you have a teacher, parent, or even student you would like to give a ‘Shout Out,’ you can submit your ‘Shout Out’ recommendation to the Scott High School ambassadors by simply emailing it to Brennon.sapp@kenton.kyschools.us.   To see previous ‘Shout Out’ posts, click here: http://www.kenton.kyschools.us/scott/News/67919#sthash.J5hXZV19.dpuf
So be sure to give us a Shout Out!

 

Keeping our students safe at Scott High School is of our highest priority.  We have recently adjusted some signage on-site to aid drivers in safely and efficiently navigating campus.  Please take a moment to review the following procedural reminders and pay close attention to signage on campus. 
Specifically:

  • Only drop students off in the proper area (at front entrance).
  • Avoid stopping along the main lanes of traffic.  Allowing students to exit your car in these areas is unsafe.
  • Be aware of the main student traffic areas and watch for pedestrians.
  • Avoid entering the bus loading area.

Thank you for your assistance in keeping our students safe.

October 4

 

Recently the state published school report cards for all public schools across the state. At this time, we are proud to report that for a third year in a row, we have been classified as a Proficient school. Our overall index for 2015-2016 is 74.0. We are also proud to report a 77.7% College and Career Readiness level. Our continued proficient performance is another great accomplishment for our school and community.

Our success is attributed to the hard work of our staff, students, and parents. The teachers and students at Scott High School are remarkable people who sincerely care about education. Our test results show that. I am proud to be your principal. Our parents have a passion for Scott High School which provides abundant support. We will continue our commitment of giving each child a high quality educational experience each and every day.

To see more detailed data on the Kentucky Report Card visit: http://applications.education.ky.gov/SRC/
 

Get Involved

Are you wondering how you can get involved with activities as Scott High School? Would you be willing to volunteer time or provide input into issues and policies at Scott High School? We would love to get you more involved. Here are a few ways you could get involved:

* Principal Chat-Dr. Sapp has a question answer session each 1st Tuesday of the month at 5:30 pm. This "chat" takes place just before the SBDM meeting, so you could also stay for the council meeting as well.

* SBDM-Scott's School Based Decision Making Council meets each 1st Tuesday at 6:00 pm. To view minutes, agendas, by-laws, and policies visit our website.

* Eagle Club-The Eagle Club is a parent group that meets every other month that works through numerous programs to support Scott High School students. For more information visit the Eagle Club on the web.

* 4 C’s Committee-The 4 C’s Committee is a joint parent-teacher committee that meets in order to advise our SBDM council in the areas of Climate, Culture, Community, and Curriculum. If you are interested in participating, please contact Roxanne Poole at roxpoole68@gmail.com

* Other Clubs-we have many clubs at Scott which are always looking for volunteers and additional community involvement. To see a list of clubs visit http://www.scott.kcactivities.org/

We look forward to hearing from you.

 

 

Become College and Career Ready (CCR)

 

Often you may hear a student or an adult ask the question "Are you CCR?", but what do they mean? CCR is short for College and Career Ready. This term is actually referring to two different categories: College Ready and Career Ready.

* A student is considered College Ready when they demonstrate the minimum required level of performance on an approved assessment such as ACT, KYOTE, or Compass. Achieving College Ready status implies a student is ready for education at the next level and will likely not be required to take remedial classes as a college student.

* In order for a student to be considered Career Ready they must first achieve a College Ready Status, complete an approved Career Pathway, and pass an approved industry level assessment such as KOSSA. Achieving Career Ready status may allow a student early acceptance into specific college programs as well as increase the chances of employment.

For more information related to CCR please follow the links below: * College and Career Readiness in Kentucky * Scott High School College and Career Website * CCR Coaching Request


CERT-A Tool for Reaching CCR

This year, instead of taking MAP assessments, all students at Scott have access to the college readiness resource CERT (College Equip Readiness Tool). CERT is an assessment program with remediation functionality, not a test-prep program. While CERT is embedded with test-preparation functionality (i.e., video answer explanations for every test question and subject-matter and test-strategy remedial lessons), its primary function is to provide teachers and students with support in improving performance toward reaching College and Readiness. Ask your child to log on at home and share in the experience.

 

We are so excited to continue on with this new school year. Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help in any way. Thanks.

Dual Credit Classes for Scott High School—TRANSPORTATION from Scott!

We are fortunate to have many great colleges in the Northern Kentucky area which continue to work with our students to provide them with a multitude of varying opportunities to start college while still in high school.  Recently we added Dual Credit Classes from Kentucky State University to the list of options available for our students in the 2016-2017 school year on Scott’s Campus.

Dual Credit Classes for Scott High School—TRANSPORTATION from Scott!

Many of the students at Scott High School continue to take advantage of the opportunity to take college classes while in high school.  These “dual credit classes” result in students getting credit for the class on their school transcript as well as their college transcript.      

 

Transportation from Scott to NKU and Gateway

Students in collaboration with Kenton County central office have arranged for coordinating bussing back and forth from Scott High School to NKU and Gateway for 2016-2017 school year.  YES—BUSING!  We will be working with students this spring to best schedule classes at specific times to facilitate these opportunities for our students.  Pretty exciting! Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

 

Dual Credit Classes at Scott

With an increased interest and participation in so many dual credit classes we have also increased the on campus opportunities for our students in 2016-2017.  The following dual credit options are available to Scott High School Students taught by Scott High School teachers who are adjunct professors at local colleges:

  • English 101
  • History 102, 103
  • German 101, 102, 201, 202
  • College Algebra

Additionally, there will be several dual credit classes based at Scott High School taught by college professors from the University.

Become College and Career Ready (CCR)

Often you may hear a student or an adult ask the question "Are you CCR?", but what do they mean?  CCR is short for College and Career Ready.  This term is actually referring to two different categories: College Ready and Career Ready.

  • A student is considered College Ready when they demonstrate the minimum required level of performance on an approved assessment such as ACT, KYOTE, or Compass.  Achieving College Ready status implies a student is ready for education at the next level and will likely not be required to take remedial classes as a college student.
  • In order for a student to be considered Career Ready they must first achieve a College Ready Status, complete an approved Career Pathway, and pass an approved industry level assessment such as KOSSA.  Achieving Career Ready status may allow a student early acceptance into specific college programs as well as increase the chances of employment.

 For more information related to CCR please follow the links below:

We are so excited for the new school year. Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or if we can help in any way. Thanks.

We at Scott High School sincerely hope each of you had a relaxing and joyful holiday break.  What a great fall semester at Scott High School!  Thank you parents, students, and staff.  We continue seeing a lot of student success this year and expect even more great things from the Scott Community as we move into the spring.

 

8th Grade Transitions

A big congratulation and thanks goes out to the Scott High School principal’s advisory who coordinated an awesome 8th grade transition fair this past Friday morning.  Middle school students were able to interact with many Scott High School students as they learned about pathway choices, sports teams, clubs, and other extra-curricular opportunities.  Students were also given a tour led by Scott High School students to show off our great facility as well as discuss future improvements.  Look for many more transition activities to follow in the next few months.

 

Where is the Bus?

Scott High School is excited to introduce a new bus app to our students and parents.  The Kenton County Board of Education is rolling out a new app which will allow students and their parents to track the location of busses in order to improve the ability of all to make decisions which will make riding the bus easier.  We will be training students on this new exciting tool on Wednesday during FLY.  If you are interested, directions can be found on this link.

 

Dual Credit Class at Scott High School

Many of the students at Scott High School take advantage of the opportunity to take college classes while in high school.  These “dual credit classes” result in students getting credit for the class on their school transcript as well as their college transcript.  This year as a result of our students hard work and initiative we are expected to award over 300 dual credits to our students.  There has been so much excitement about this opportunity at Scott, that the Principal’s Student Advisory in collaboration with Kenton County central office are planning on coordinating bussing back and forth from Scott High School to NKU for 2016-2017 school year.  NKU will actually be collaborating with us to schedule more classes at specific times to facilitate these opportunities for our students.  Pretty exciting! Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

 

Planning for the Future

Spring is a crucial time for students as they continue to learn and grow in preparation for Spring assessments, like the ACT (March 1) and End of Course exams, while planning for their future.  For our seniors this means registering for College and/or transitioning to the work force.  Many seniors will be preparing for College and Career Ready assessments including the ACT, Compass, and/or KYOTE in addition to completing college applications.  Underclassmen also will soon begin preparing to make decisions about course registration for the 2016-2017 school year.  The decision to take challenging classes is important to assure student success in the future.  Be on the lookout for multiple communications on all these topics in the coming weeks and months.  Some important dates for you keep in mind:

August

Wow! What a great start to what is bound to be another great year at Scott High School. School is well underway and everyone is working hard to maintain the high level of learning which is a tradition at Scott High School. With a little over 930 students currently enrolled, we are excited to see them start off the year in such a positive manner.   

ScottFest
Thanks so much to everyone who came and joined us for ScottFest. It was a great success with hundreds of visitors touring the new wing, visiting the ScottFest booths, and enjoying the Scott Concession Stand. 

 

Schedules

First trimester schedules are set.  It is possible that a student has a class or two which will need to be adjusted for the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. We will be working on those in the next few weeks.  It is likely we will need to hire additional staff to accommodate the slight increase in enrollment. A change in staffing will increase the options for student schedules in 2nd and 3rd trimester. If your child has an open class in the 2nd or 3rd trimester, don’t worry; we will be adjusting that schedule over the next few weeks to assure they have a full schedule before classes begin. We will continue to work on schedules to improve the quality of the educational experience at Scott High School.  

Learning and Behavioral Expectations

Scott High School students have experienced several conversations since the beginning of school in relation to learning and behavior expectations. These included small group instruction from multiple teachers and a presentation from myself. This week a letter from Scott High School will be sent home which references these events and policies with links to information for you to review with your child.  Please take the time to review, sign, and return to the school. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at Brennon.sapp@kenton.kyschools.us

Construction

The Kenton County School Board continues to support and facilitate the structural improvements to Scott High School.

Scott Cares

Scott Cares will continue a weekly advisory period this year. Once a week, we will meet in small groups with our students to discuss their future as well as the best ways for them to become responsible adults. The first three days of school we utilized the advisor/advisee period to review student expectations as well as send information home for parents to review. After reviewing student expectations, parents are asked to confirm understanding by signing a written acknowledgement which should then be sent back to school. If you have any questions about student expectations, please contact me at Brennon.sapp@kenton.kyschools.us.

Grading Scale

After a year of research, conversations with teachers, students, and parents, Scott High School SBDM asked the Kenton County Board of Education if they would alter the district grading scale to a ten point scale in order to be more consistent with college grading scales as well as other advantages (please see SBDM minutes for more details). Beginning this fall the new grading scale will be in effect in Kenton County Schools.

 

 

 



June Principal Message

June Principal Message

Congratulations Scott High School Class of 2015.  What a great year at Scott High.  Thank you parents, students, teachers, and staff for all of your hard work and commitment.  As we say good bye to our seniors, we are already working hard to prepare for the start of another school year this fall.  School starts Aug. 19th, and we have high expectations for another great year.

Dual Credit Classes for 2015-2016

We currently have almost 100 students scheduled to take a dual credit college class as a dual enrolled student in 2015-2016 school year.  In addition to a variety of AP classes, we offer several dual credit options on campus at Scott each year.  Dual credit and AP courses will receive weight in the KEES GPA calculation.   

 If you are interested in signing up for dual credit classes for the 2015-2016 school year, it is not too late.  Any class you take at a college will be counted as a dual credit class at Scott.  Please contact Mr. Rogers or your counselor if you have questions.

Schedules for 2015-2016 School Year

We are currently working hard on completing student schedules for the 2015-2016 school year.  Preliminary schedules were provided to students the last day of school for 2015-2016 Scott High School students. The master schedule has been developed, but it is likely that a few adjustments will need to be made in response to student needs.  We will continue to work on schedules throughout the summer to assure the best overall schedule for all of our students at Scott High School:

If you currently have an incomplete schedule it may be for several different reasons:

• Some of the classes you signed up for did not have enough students to make the 2015-2016 schedule
• Some of the classes you signed up for may be in conflict (be scheduled for the same period)
• You may not have chosen classes for which you are qualified
• You may have not provided viable alternative classes

We continually work on schedules.  Please be patient as counselors and administrators do get some summer vacation, but we will address your concerns as we can.

Your schedule could change for several different reasons, including but not limited to:

• If you do not pass a class, this could cause your current schedule to be re-evaluated
• If you need a specialized class (like an RTI class) we may need to alter your schedule in order to get all of your needed classes
• If the school experiences some unforeseen change in staffing which causes certification issues, we may have to eliminate and/or change some class offerings.

 

While we are projected to have 879 students in the fall of 2015, if we end up with more or less students the result could be more schedule changes in order to have a school wide schedule which best benefits our entire student body.  

Counselors will be in the office until June 9 and after Aug 5.  We plan on making schedules visible on line through infinite campus on Aug 8.

In order to make a schedule change please utilize the schedule change request form located on our website at:

Become College and Career Ready (CCR)

Often you may hear a student, or an adult, ask the question "Are you CCR?", but what do they mean?  CCR is short for College and Career Ready. This term is actually referring to two different categories, College Ready and Career Ready.

* A student is considered College Ready when they demonstrate the minimum required level of performance on an approved assessment such as ACT, KYOTE, or Compass. Achieving College Ready status implies a student is ready for education at the next level, college, and will likely not be required to take remedial classes as a college student.

* In order for a student to be considered Career Ready they must first achieve a College Ready Status, complete an approved Career Pathway, and pass an approved industry level assessment such as KOSSA. Achieving Career Ready status may allow a student early acceptance into specific college programs as well as increase the chances of employment.

Become College and Career Ready (CCR)

Often you may hear a student, or an adult, ask the question "Are you CCR?", but what do they mean?  

CCR is short for College and Career Ready. This term is actually referring to two different categories, College Ready and Career Ready.

 

* A student is considered College Ready when they demonstrate the minimum required level of performance on an approved assessment such as ACT, KYOTE, or Compass. Achieving College Ready status implies a student is ready for education at the next level, college, and will likely not be required to take remedial classes as a college student.

 

* In order for a student to be considered Career Ready they must first achieve a College Ready Status, complete an approved Career Pathway, and pass an approved industry level assessment such as KOSSA. Achieving Career Ready status may allow a student early acceptance into specific college programs as well as increase the chances of employment.

We would like to say thanks to all the parents, teachers, and students who contributed to the organization and finalization of the Scott Course Guide for 2015-2016. Watch for access to the 2015-2016 course options on our website later this week. It is important to plan for the future while continuing to persist in the present. We continue to see alot of student success this year and expect even more great things from the Scott Community as we move into the spring.

 

Kenton County Academies of Innovation and Technology

If you currently have a freshmen or sophomore at Scott High School, you likely heard your student speaking of an "Academy Presentation" this past week. On Wednesday and Thursday of this past week, Scott High School freshmen and sophomores were presented with the awesome opportunity of applying for acceptance into a Kenton County Academy of Innovation and Technology. If you would like to review some of the information yourself, please check it out on the web at: http://www.kenton.kyschools.us/school_home.aspx?schoolid=41. Application can be made on-line through the 12th of February at http://fs7.formsite.com/jwhitis79/form1/index.html. Any student interested is encouraged to apply.

Planning for the Future

Spring is a crucial time for students as they continue to learn and grow in preparation for Spring assessments, including the ACT (March 3rd for Juniors) and End of Course exams, while planning for their future. For our seniors this means registering for College and/or transitioning to the work force. Many seniors will be preparing for College and Career Ready assessments including the ACT, Compass, and/or KYOTE in addition to completing college applications. Underclassmen will also soon begin preparing to make decisions about course registration for the 2015-2016 school year. The decision to take challenging classes is important to assure student success in the future. Be on the lookout for multiple communications on all these topics in the coming weeks and months. The course guide for 2015-2016 school year is expected to be published by February 6. To get a preview of career pathways, freshman options, and senior options, feel free to explore the scheduling flow charts available on line at: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bwi_XihfJsDGbUNPZHN5RFVnNlE&authuser=0

Last week the state published school report cards for all public schools across the state.  At this time, we discovered that we are classified as a Proficient school.  While our state goal was to increase our raw score by one point, we increased our raw score by 8.7 points!  We grew from the 28th percentile to the 73rd percentile.  We increased our scores in achievement, gap, CCR (College and Career Ready), and graduation rate.  This gain is a good step for our school and community.

 

Our success is attributed to the hard work of our staff, students, and parents.  The teachers and students at Scott High School are remarkable people who sincerely care about education.  Our test results show that.  I am proud to be their principal.  Our parents have a passion for Scott High School which provides much support.  We will continue our commitment of giving each child a high quality educational experience each and every day.

 

As we move forward, we will keep in place the programs that have proven beneficial to our students.  We will also continue to identify ways for us to improve.  We are pleased with our growth and plan to continue with our upward trend.

Teacher Awards
Each month at Scott High School faculty meetings, four teachers are recognized for their contributions and commitment to Scott High School in the following areas.  Please congratulate:
 
• Academic Urgency Award– This is awarded to a teacher who regularly pushes students to be engaged at a high level. In this teacher’s class students are learning on a schedule and are trying to learn/accomplish goals at a fast pace. Students are engaged bell to bell. This month’s recipient is Mr. Ryan Henry.
 
• Positive Behavioral Support Role Model-This is awarded to a teacher who does an exceptional job of modeling or training other teachers in PBIS in order to improve a teammate’s performance. This teacher utilizes positive interventions and language with students including Eagle Cash and Eagle Bucks.  This month’s recipient is Mr. Brad Carr.

Assessments
Last week our freshmen and sophomore students began MAP testing in Math and English.  These assessments are utilized to provide specific feedback on each student’s performance in order to target instruction in areas of need.  Additionally, our sophomores registered for the PLAN test.  The PLAN test, which will be given on the morning of Tuesday, September 23, will provide information on each student’s progress toward college readiness.  
 
Schedule
With the recent additions of staff, we added several sections of classes.  We are currently adjusting 2nd and 3rd trimester classes.  Student schedules for 2nd and 3rd trimesters are scheduled to be completed this week.  We will continue to concentrate efforts on graduation requirements first and then consider elective choices.  If students find they would like to change a class for 2nd or 3rd trimester, they should utilize the schedule change request forms and only request viable schedule changes.

Principal’s Message

 

Welcome back. We had a great first week of School at Scott; I hope you enjoyed it as well.  We are happy to report that we have over 950 students with us at Scott this year.  As our community continues to grow, so is our School.

 

Driving, Parking and Walking

Please review the driving pattern on our school website in order to aid us in maintaining a safe drop off and pickup for students attending Scott this year.  This past Friday there were several students loading cars on the main entrance/exit to Scott (beside the band room).  Please enter the pickup loop while picking up students.  We will have additional personnel on hand this week to help maintain proper procedure.

 

Students should have parking passes.  We will be monitoring the parking lots again this week, so please purchase a parking pass in the front office as soon as possible.

 

The new road bed is still under construction and not a safe walking path. There is no crosswalk or signaling in place to assist a pedestrian at this time. Students attempting to cross the road in front of the school would be crossing into an active construction zone. Currently no students should be walking to school at Scott or Woodland.

 

Schedules  We will continue to look at schedule requests for students who send them into us.  However, we will continue to concentrate efforts on graduation requirements and new enrollments.  Please utilize the schedule change request forms and only request viable schedule changes.

* SEND SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS FOR LAST NAMES L-Z TO: deborah.ison@kenton.kyschools.us

 

Expectations and Policy Changes

Last week each teacher spent time reviewing and teaching all students the school’s expectations for behavior and engagement.  As we move forward in the school year, we will review specific expectations to keep them fresh in the students’ minds.  If you have not already done so, we would like for you to take some time to review these expectations with the students at home.  Please refer to the policies below as well as The Kenton County School District Code of Expected Behavior and Conduct.  Each student did receive a copy this past week and an electronic copy is available on line at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwi_XihfJsDGdDl5RGZlaTA4WEE/edit?usp=sharing

 

* Academic Urgency/College and Career Ready-While we have many great students at Scott and we are seeing much improvement in our performance data, we will continue to raise the expectations of student performance in each and every classroom.  Please take some time to discuss the urgency of learning with your friends and family.  We, teachers and students, will

continue to make each student's education a priority.  It is our goal that each student become college and career ready before leaving Scott High School. * Dress Code-Scott SBDM recently passed a new dress code policy that will increase the professionalism of what students wear to school.  This includes a requirement for longer shorts, specific restrictions on yoga pants, and a decrease of overall skin exposure.  Please review the policy and be aware as you shop for school clothes this summer. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwi_XihfJsDGdEhHRXVRblk4Tm8/edit?usp=sharing

*Other Recent Changes to Student Expectations-We will also be implementing the following policies at Scott beginning this fall:

 

* Electronic Device Policy https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwi_XihfJsDGblVuTmFpRGlSVEU/edit?usp=sharing

* Food and Drink Policy https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwi_XihfJsDGN1hpdzdGM3VGR28/edit?usp=sharing

Later this week, each student will bring home a letter for their parent/guardian to sign signifying that you have reviewed these expectations with your students and will join us in our efforts to inspire students to achieve at their highest potential.    We are so excited for the new school year. Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or we can help in any way.

Welcome Back (School Starts August 14)

Welcome back. We hope everyone is experiencing a wonderful summer and is looking forward to another great year at Scott High School. We continue to work this summer to prepare for our students’ success in the 2013-2014 school year. This is going to be an exciting year filled with great opportunities, as we are currently expecting up to 75 additional students to be with us this fall as we start the year.

Schedules

Through the hard work and planning of students and school personnel, we were able to satisfy 90% of all student requests for classes this coming year. Not only do we have more students taking the classes they want, but we also have more students in AP Classes, dual credit classes, and coop classes than ever before.

There have been a few personnel changes this year that have affected the schedule. We really appreciate your help and patience as we adjust individual schedules to best fit each student’s needs. Schedules will be made visible again through Infinite Campus during the week of July 22. If you still need schedule changes, we want to work with you. Please complete a “Schedule Change Form” at http://www.kenton.kyschools.us/userfiles/1703/Requesting%20Schedule%20Changes%20SUMMER.docx and email your counselor with questions, thoughts, or to set up a meeting.

Deborah.Ison@kenton.kyschools.us Sophomore/Freshman Counselor

As always, the first trimester is the most important for now. If in fact 75 additional students show up to attend Scott this fall, we will be hiring additional staff to accommodate these students. This could also result in additional elective classes being added for 2nd and 3rd trimester (keep your eyes open). As coun

Back to School Orientation (Open House)

Scott will hold a back to school orientation from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on August 8th at the High School. Look for a program in the next few weeks. There will be a number of breakout sessions as well as question-answer times. Sessions will include:

Due much to the conservation and financial responsibility of The Kenton County School District, we will not be charging general school fees again this year. Additionally, we will not be collecting AP class fees this year. If and when students decide to take an AP test, fees will be charged at that time. Please join us.

School start August 14th, we can’t wait to see you.

Staff & Congratulations

We have worked hard this summer seeking out and finding the best staff. We have a wonderful group of teachers who are returning to Scott as well as a number of new staff.

We at Scott High School are very proud of our faculty who moved on to other callings. We would like to congratulate Mr. Moody for being chosen as the new band director at Cooper Middle School in Boone County. We congratulate Mr. Taylor on his retirement from a 37 year teaching career. We would also like to congratulate Mr. Fangman on his new teaching position in Grant County. Good luck guys, we will miss you.

We at Scott High School are very proud to welcome our new Kenton County Board Member Jesica Jehn of Taylor Mill.

Construction

The new wing is well under way. It has been a hot and wet summer, but construction has moved along at a good pace. At this time we do not anticipate any major disruptions due to the current school construction. We will keep you informed.

Scott Cares

Scott Cares will expand to include a weekly advisory period this coming year. Once a week, we will meet in small groups with our students to discuss their future as well as the best ways for them to become responsible adults.

The staff and administration have been working hard at Scott the last few months to plan and design our new course guide. This course guide was recently approved by our SBDM council and is available now online on our school website:

http://www.kenton.kyschools.us/school_home.aspx?schoolid=2

Please take some time to look over our course offerings and scheduling guidelines for the coming year and let us know if you have any questions. There are many upgrades including placement of students into specific classes based on their MAP scores and other performance measures. As always, whether or not a particular course will be taught in any given year depends upon several factors, including staff allocations and demand for that course. All courses are subject to student enrollment and faculty availability. You will find several new course offerings including AP and Dual Credit classes. There are also multiple oportunities to enroll in specialized programs like Renaissance Academy here at Scott High School or a Kenton County Academy of Innovation and Technology.

 

Please visit: http://www.kenton.kyschools.us/school_home.aspx?schoolid=41 to find out more about the KCAIT.

 

Over the next few weeks our students will be scheduling their classes for next year. In order to proceed with the scheduling process efficiently, we are scheduling students on-line this year. A hard copy of the selection sheets is available on-line for your convenience. We will be facilitating the scheduling process with students at school over the next couple of weeks, please discuss with your child and look online with them at your convenience. Your input into the scheduling process is essential. Our current plan is to have all student course selections completed as of Friday March 22.

 

Thank you so much for being part of the Scott community. If you have questions or would like to discuss any of the topics from this communication, or simply express your concerns, please feel free to contact me by email or phone. As always, Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things.

 


January (click to view)


As we approach the halfway point for the school year, our students, teachers, and staff continue to make our good school great. It has been a great year for us at Scott and we continue to see improvements and growth from our students.

We now look forward to the spring with all the exciting challenges and experiences it brings. If you have seniors, please talk to them about their transition into the next phase of their life, whatever that may be. We have many seniors who will be taking on internships or college classes this year; please ask a counselor if you would like to get a senior to take advantage of one of these opportunities. If you have an underclassman, consider beginning the discussion with them as well, for they soon will be transitioning to the adult life.

Spring also begins our discussions and planning for next year’s scheduling. Please start these discussions with your children as well. As the students are just finishing up their most recent round of skills testing (MAP), we will have access to the most recent measure of their capabilities and will be utilizing this information in the scheduling process.

One issue we have been most concerned with lately is the number of students who are not reaching Career and College ready benchmarks. Our research and experience has brought us to the conclusion that the most common reason for students not reaching this goal is their poor skills in math and English. We at Scott High School take this responsibility seriously and as a result recently our School Based Decision Making Council passed a policy to transform the English and math classes for freshman and sophomores into 1.5 credits. That is, freshman and sophomores who are not projected to be career and college ready will take additional English and math during their freshman and sophomore year in order to improve their essential basic skill in these areas. This enhanced focused time in math and English will greatly enhance their potential for success. See our web site or email me if you would like more details on these new policies.

Poor math and English skills also result in many students doing poorly in many of their other classes and challenges in life as they move forward in their education. For this reason, we are also setting several prerequisites for classes which require more advanced skills. For example, students with poor Algebra skills may not have the capacity to take on chemistry and other advanced classes; students who are reading below grade level most often cannot read well enough to take on a new language. Our new Course Catalogue with these guidelines will be available in February for anyone who wishes to see them.

Thank you so much for being part of the Scott community. If you have questions or would like to discuss any of the topics from this communication, or simply express your concerns, please feel free to contact me by email or phone. As always, Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things.

As we approach the end of the first trimester, our students, teachers, and staff continue to make strides toward making our good school great. Today, data from Kentucky’s new school accountability system will be released in a School Report Card that indicates our school’s performance across a range of categories. We are not satisfied with Scott’s overall score or classification of “Needs Improvement”. While this report sheds light on some areas of needed improvement and will help us continue to focus our efforts, we have already begun to address many of our priority needs. As we move forward this year and next, we will also use the information from the School Report card to improve the quality of education for all students at Scott High School.

Based on our own assessment of our instructional program last year, we have already begun to address many of the needs that the School Report Card confirms. To improve our overall school culture, we have transformed the way we interact with students to always be professional and polite. We also seek out and value our student’s perceptions in order to improve teaching and learning. We have taken specific steps to increase the quality of teaching in each and every classroom. Through the introduction of strong new curricular programs such as the Renaissance Academy, SpringBoard, the Math Design Collaborative, and the Literacy Design Collaborative, we have greatly increased the rigor in our classes. Additionally, we have renovated our Arts & Humanities program and Physical Education program to allow student choice in order to support students excelling in these areas. Through the implementation of regular classroom walkthroughs and teacher collaboration, we have significantly improved the quality of lesson design and student engagement. Finally, through the implementation of Scott Cares, our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program, we have begun to improve our focus on learning by teaching our students proper behavior and etiquette. As many of our students will attest, these changes have already improved the quality of their education and experience at Scott High School.

As we look forward to the second trimester, we are confident we are moving in the right direction. We will continue to raise the quality of teaching and increase student expectations. As our culture improves, we will provide more opportunities for Woodland students to be part of Scott through classes and transition activities. We will also continue to make it easier for our students who are ready to enroll in dual-credit college classes and career based experiences while in high school. We have also begun planning for an advisor/advisee program in the 2013-2014 school year to provide students with the individual support they need to be successful in life after graduation.

Thank you so much for being part of the Scott community. If you have questions or would like to discuss any of the topics from this communication, or simply express your concerns, please feel free to contact me by email or phone. As always, Scott will continue to be a place where great students do amazing things.

School Year Continues to Go Well
School continues to go really well this year. We have such wonderful students and staff here at Scott High School and they are working together wonderfully.

Parent-Teacher Conference
Our first scheduled parent-teacher conference is later this week (Thursday 9/27). Please come in and visit us. Of course you can contact any of our teachers at anytime by email if you need to set up a personal conference.

Schedules
With the addition of new staff we have taken full advantage the trimester schedule and adjusted schedules for students during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Most student’s schedules should be in good shape now, but if you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our counselors.
Delia.Williams@kenton.kyschools.us Senior/Junior Counselor
Deborah.Ison@kenton.kyschools.us Sophomore/Freshman Counselor

School Accountability
All Kentucky schools will be evaluated equally on 1) Student Achievement, 2) GAP’s in the performance of multiple student groups, 3) Growth in Student Achievement, 4) College/Career Readiness, and 5) Four Year Graduation Rate. The first category is Student Achievement which will be assessed by how well our students perform on End of Course Assessments (EOCs) and the On-Demand Writing. Students take EOC exams at the completion of courses in English II, Algebra II, Biology, and US History. The EOC assessment, designed by QualityCore®, has been developed based on research in high-performing classrooms that focus on the essential standards for college and career readiness. If you would like to know more about EOC assessments, visit http://education.ky.gov .
Scott SBDM
Scott SBDM has moved the regularly scheduled meetings to the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 5:30 PM. Please come out and be with us.

Homecoming
Homecoming this year is on October 5th at 8:00 pm. The Homecoming Parade will start at Pride Park at 7:10. Parade participants from Pride Park will be our awesome band, the homecoming court, floats for each class, and Woodland. Anyone else who would like to join the parade can meet us on Vincent Drive and continue on into the school.

With road construction on Old Taylor Mill Rd, it was possible that our Homecoming Parade would be canceled. Through the collaboration of many, the parade will go on and our students will experience the joy of participation in this treasured tradition. Thanks to the city commissioners and the Taylor Mill community for allowing this parade to take place, thanks to the parents from Scott who used the democratic process to advocate for Scott, and thanks to Mr. Mueller for representing the school in this process.

Scott Cares
Scott will continue to be a place were great kids do great things. We hope you will be a part of our community. Please let us know if you have questions or we can help in any way. Thanks.

Great Start to the School Year
We have had a wonderful first week and a half here at Scott High School. Our students and staff are getting reacquainted and academia is in full motion.
Great news, we have over 120 students more than projected. We have spent the last week interviewing and hiring highly qualified teachers to fill the vacancies created by our increased enrollment. The challenge however has been scheduling. We have had to alter many students’ schedules and will continue to work with our students and families to create the best educational setting we can provide.
New Hires
Since the beginning of the school year, due to our increased enrollment, we have added an English position, a Social Studies position, a Math position, and a Spanish position, as well as added several sections of culinary arts. With the addition of our new staff, Scott is stronger than ever and we are looking forward to a bright future.
Schedules
With the addition of new staff we will take full advantage of being on trimester and adjust schedules for some students during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Even with the challenges of originally being understaffed, we were able satisfy 90% of student requests in the original schedule. Now, with the addition of new staffing positions, 2nd and 3rd trimester schedules will have much more flexibility. We will be adjusting 2nd and 3rd trimester schedules in the next few weeks. Please contact your counselor to discuss.

School Accountability
This year will be the first year schools in Kentucky are to be evaluated under the new accountability system resulting from Senate Bill 1. All Kentucky schools will be evaluated equally on 1) Overall Student Achievement, 2) GAP’s in the performance of multiple student groups, 3) Growth in Student Achievement, 4) College/Career Readiness, and 5) Four Year Graduation Rate. Over the next few communications from Scott, you will receive detailed information about how this new accountability system is organized as well as how each of the five areas are to be calculated. For more detailed information please visit Assessment and Accountability at http://education.ky.gov
