Grant funding received to help middle schools close gaps

KDE has awarded funding that will make it possible for NKCES to hire a School Academic Liaison. This person will work with staff to improve and integrate RTI processes at RA Jones Middle School (Boone County), Tichenor Middle School (Erlanger-Elsmere Independent), Ludlow High School middle school grades 7 and 8 (Ludlow Independent), and Sharp Middle School (Pendleton County).

We expect all schools to benefit as trainings and experiences are shared regionally online and in person through the co-op. Expected outcomes include 1) reducing gaps between all students and students with disabilities and 2) reducing the percentage of students with novice scores in reading and mathematics.
