Our high school, made up of 800+ students, is situated in the heart of rural Kentucky. While schools our size and in rural communities are not unique to Kentucky, our philosophy on teaching and "doing school" is non-traditional.
Our school is a project based campus that promotes personalized learning, allowing students to learn at their own pace and ability, rather than their age and grade.
Students receive instruction in both traditional classrooms, as well as classrooms that allow for self-paced project development. In a world that is constantly evolving, our district has recognized that education can no longer be a cookie cutter formula. Our teachers are constantly adapting to meet the needs of our diverse student population.
The library is the hub of our school, and it is the place students come for information, community, resources, and even entertainment. It is the place that hosts meetings (during and after school) for students, parents, teachers and even members the community. We are in need of a display (Smart TV) to promote events in the school, to display students work & art, and to provide a platform for spreading awareness with student PSAs and events.
Initially, our new Smart TV will host announcements, students art, and student work-- but with this new display, students will have the opportunity to use our "studio" and green screen wall, to make classroom projects, student PSAs, and school news videos to be displayed daily.
Our goal is to develop more media related products that not only disseminate information but to promote new technology and media-relation skills to make students career & college ready.
