Parent Fall Break Survey

We want to hear from you!

There are numerous implications with both keeping or not keeping fall break in the calendar.  The purpose of this survey is NOT to survey all of the different possible scenarios keeping or eliminating a fall break could potentially mean to the development of the 18-19 calendar recommendation.  Rather, the purpose is to get a general idea to what extent our parents want to keep or not keep fall break in the calendar.  Your individual responses will not be shared with the committee.  Only the overall results will be shared.  If you have already responded via the parent email that was sent, no need to complete survey again as your response has been recorded.  Thank you.

Infinite Campus App Update

Infinite Campus LogoAttention Parents!

Recently there was an update to our Infinite Campus program, which in turn called for an update to the Infinite Campus App that many of you may use to monitor your students homework assignments and grades.  In the past, the app required an alpha code be entered to access your child's information.  With the update, users are now asked to enter the county and state of the school district their child is enrolled in currently.  This information should only need to entered with the initial download of the app.  However, you may be asked to log in with your username and password when using the app.  If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail our District Student Information Systems Coordinator, Kathy Kurtz, at kathy.kurtz@woodford.kyschools.us.

Important Information Regarding Wind Chill Delays and Closings Snowy Fence

How Does the Wind Chill Affect School Being Delayed or Closed?

During the winter months several factors come into play that could delay the start of school or cause school to be  closed all together. One such factor is the wind chill on a given day. On particularly cold mornings we continuously monitor the National Weather Service and closely monitor the weather conditions. There are two possible scenarios that come from the National Weather Service: a Wind Chill Advisory and a Wind Chill Warning. The National Weather Service in Louisville, KY defines the two as the following:

  • Wind Chill Advisory: Wind Chills between -10 and -24 degrees and at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.
  • Wind Chill Warning: Wind Chills -25 degrees and below with at least a wind of 10 MPH or more.
Substitute Employment Opportunity

The Woodford County Board of Education is accepting applications for substitute employees.  To apply, click on Employment to the left of this article.  You may choose from a certified substitute position or a classified substitute position. 

Certified substitutes (teacher) have a minimum requirement of 64 college credit hours.  The daily rate is $90 - $113 a day based upon rank and experience.

Classified substitutes (support staff) require a high school diploma or GED.  The daily rate is $10.66 - $20.22 an hour based upon years of experience.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Staff and Student Services, Garet Wells, at 859-879-4600 or e-mail at garet.wells@woodford.kyschools.us.

Important Information regarding NTI Days

WCPS Non-Traditional Instruction Day LogoWoodford County Public Schools will continue to utilize NTI Days or "Non-Traditional Instruction" Days for the 2016-2017 school year.  This is a great opportunity for our district to allow our students to be engaged in learning at home on days when the weather does not allow school to be in session.  For much more information on this matter, please click here for a letter from Superintendent Scott Hawkins.

PARENT SURVEY

For the past several years, the Woodford County Board of Education has adopted an instructional calendar based largely on the recommendations of the calendar committee.  The calendar committee consists of employees representing different schools and job classifications as well as students and parents.  The calendar committee will begin its work drafting the 15-16 school year instructional calendar in a few months. One item on the calendar that traditionally is discussed at length is fall break.  For many years it has been a full week break.  However, the committee often gets feedback about adjusting the duration of fall break.  Since it has been quite some time since the opinions of our stakeholders were formally surveyed in great detail, we are requesting your opinion.  In short, we want to know if given a choice, would you like fall break to remain a week or would you prefer fall break be a long weekend (i.e. off on Thursday and Friday before the weekend or off the Friday before and Monday after the weekend).  While your feedback is greatly appreciated, rest assured that individual survey results will not be shared with the committee.  Only the overall totals of those voting for a week and the overall totals of those voting for a long weekend will be shared.   Please visit the following link to complete the survey.  Thanks!  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZRDZMWB
