Announcement

Bracken County Schools has subscribed to a new phone service for parents which will allow us to better communicate information to the home.  It is integrated into our student information system, Infinite Campus.

Following are some types of information you can receive from the school district or school using this phone messaging system:

  • School cancellations or delays
  • Emergency situations
  • School reminders and deadlines
  • Attendance
Parent or guardian contact information (phone numbers, email addresses, etc.) are obtained from your student's enrollment form.  
If your contact information changes, please contact the school with updated information so that it can be entered into our data system.

Congratulations Bracken County High School

The College Board recently recognized 477 school districts from the US and Canada as being AP District Honor Roll recipients. Included in the 4th Annual AP Honor Roll were 13 districts from Kentucky, 10 of which have schools in the AdvanceKentucky program (up from five last year). The 10 are: Bracken County, Fayette County, Floyd County, Logan County, Madison County, Marion County, Marshall County, McLean County, Murray Independent, and Pulaski County. Each received the award for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement course work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.

Inclusion on the Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data for the following criteria:

Districts must:

1. Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts and at least 11 percent in small districts;

2. Ensure that the percentage of African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students taking AP Exams did not decrease by more than 5 percent for large and medium districts or by more than 10 percent for small districts;

3. Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2012 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2010, unless the district has already attained a performance level in which more than 70 percent of the AP students are scoring a 3 or higher
