Pyramid Award Winners
Congratulations to these OCHS teachers, 2014-2015 Pyramid Award Winners:
Jace Bryant, Courtney Combs, Angela Keine-Kracht, Abby Mack, and Angie Ross!

Thank you to the Oldham County Educational Foundation for their support.

Established in 1989, the Oldham County Educational foundation fosters business and community support for Oldham County Schools. OCEF supports the educational mission of the Oldham County Board of Education by providing monetary support for program outside of the district's budget.

Currently, OCEF is focused on several key funding priorities: STEM initiatives (science, technology, engineering and math), gifted and talented services, the Oldham County Schools Arts Center and the annual Pyramid Awards for innovative classroom instruction.


Seeking Feedback on Draft Social Studies and Arts Standards
The Kentucky Department of Education is seeking feedback on proposed Social Studies and Arts Standards. Senate Bill 1 (2009) calls for Kentucky to revise all standards to be aligned with the latest research, informed by national efforts, internationally comparable, and focused on the critical thinking and practices students need for success in the 21st century. Though both sets of standards have met those criteria and have involved Kentucky educators, it is time to seek even broader feedback to inform next drafts/steps in the process of adoption into Kentucky’s required Academic Standards.

 


Beginning Monday, November 3 and going through Friday, December 5, all interested Kentucky citizens (and even those outside of our state) are invited to review the proposed standards in Social Studies and the Arts and share feedback and suggestions that will be used to revise/refine them prior to final consideration for adoption. Because we anticipate a large response to this invitation, we will be delaying action by the Kentucky Board of Education until after the December meeting. Feedback and comments will need to be thoughtfully considered and any needed revisions made before bringing forward final sets of proposed standards to the board for action.

To provide feedback on the draft Social Studies Standards, please use this link.

To provide feedback on the Arts Standards, you may select to review the standards for only one of the ‘forms’ – or all of them. The links are listed below.
