The Kenton County School District will present its annual Professional Growth Academy (PGA) on August 6-8 at Turkey Foot Middle School.
We are fortunate to have many talented speakers lined up to share their knowledge and expertise this year. New this year each day will begin with a Keynote Speaker to start our focused learning. You will also find many teachers who are excited to share best practices from their classrooms, Central Office Staff who offer a perspective from the district level and local community members who have joined us for the week to offer their expertise. All come together with the purpose of sharing knowledge and strategies to increase student achievement!
Keynote speakers for this year include:
- Dr. Henry Webb - KCSD Superintendent (Tuesday, Aug. 6)
- Alyssa Parker - co-founder of Safe and Sound, author and mother of Sandy Hook Elementary victim Emilie Parker (Wednesday, Aug. 7)
- Kathleen Budge - co-author (with William Parrett) of the 2012 award-winning book Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools (Thursday, Aug. 8)
