It should have been closed down more than ten years ago.

All of the test scores for the elementary schools were posted in a previous thread. Look at that one for more info, or look them up yourself online. It's definitely true.

Barbourville system is not in any danger.
I wouldn't be so quick to say that. I know that Barbourville City is currently at cap for the number of Knox Co. kids that they are permitted to take and they can't go over any more or they will be losing money. That was a motion set forth by the Knox Co. school board and only step one of moving toward the ending of the recprocal agreement with Barbourville city. If and when that happens Barbourville City can't afford to stay open. Maybe for a couple of years or so, but that's it. People in Knox Co. can't afford to pay tuition to the city school in order for their children to attend school out of district, especially in the down economy and so many jobs that have been lost over the past few years around here. It would be best for everybody involved if the two schools merged because it would bring the best of administrators, teachers, students, athletes, etc. together for a common cause.

There is no best of at either place LOOK AT TEST SCORES. They need to replace all involved at booth places.

The only job The Knox Co Board can do right is keep keep students that don't think SSI is a career choice from leaving leaving thier failed school system.

Oh wait...Huette said they will be the top of the state in 5 years.

Oh wait...Huette said that 6 years ago.

BHS is safe and sound. It is a small school with a great deal of pride. My kids have been friends with their classmates for twenty plus years. If you want to point fingers, point the finger in your direction. How many of these posts are from parents who sit down every night and go over homework. If parents are not involved then your kids are not involved. Test scores are down across the state--do your homework. Study test results. What did your kid score; I bet you don't know. If you want to keep your kids clean and sober then I think you need to set an example. Help them set goals and know what they are interested in. You might be surprised.

I am a graduate of KCHS and I am also a college graduate with a great career. High School is all what you make it. If you have good parents that support you in what you do there is no worries. The problem with today is that a lot of parents of school aged children are on drugs, they lay around on the draw and teach their children its ok. If you raise a child to be ambitious and to work hard it doesn't matter where they go to school they WILL succeed, point blank period.

My daughter went to GR Hampton and was getting treated horribly, I moved her to Barbourville City and her grades are great and doesn't get picked on either because of be from the county. I think some people may be jealous because their children can not go to the city school. Also, I do not need test scores to tell me how my daughter is doing, we can see that everyday with her grades. If any school needs shut down its the county schools.

The city school receives finding for the county kids that attend school there our if district, so yes they are benefitting from those students. I don't know the numbers but I would bet that a great majority if the city school students are in fact from the county. If the county decides to not re-sign the reciprocal agreement with the city school, it will definitely impact the city school tremendously because they will loose funds that those students bring in. The only way they could survive if this situation were to occur would be to charge tuition for out if city district students. People aren't going to be able to afford to do that. The only way the city school could do aside from charging tuition is to only except only kids that resude on the city limits and downsize majorly. That process would include teacher, administrative, and staff layoffs, etc. among other things. There is a great possibility of the Knox school board not re-signing the reciprocal agreement, like they didnt with Corbin. From what I have been told the Knox school board was reluctant to sign it the last time it was up for renewal. The city school and those who attend there should be prepared to face this very real possibility.

I will give you one thing your username fits you well. Do look at the test scores because the city school test scores are among the lowest of the schools in the area.
