Indicators used in the 2017-18 Kentucky School Accountability system include proficiency (reading and math); separate academic indicator (science, social studies, and writing); growth; transition readiness; and graduation rate.

“We are very pleased and proud of our teachers, principals, staff, and students. Henderson County Schools continues to provide extraordinary education, and this is certainly reflected in our recent state assessment data,” states Marganna Stanley, Superintendent of Henderson County Schools. “We have reviewed the assessment data and have identified areas where we need improvement, and our principals and teachers have already started forming strategies and plans to reach students in need of additional support.”

“Whereas our schools and community are accustomed to terms such as ‘Distinguished’ or ‘Proficient,’ the term ‘Other’ during this transition year does not seem to fully capture the success of our schools. For instance, our middle school math scores are 8th in the state putting our middle schools in the top 5%. Additionally, our elementary math scores ranked 16th in the state. Our elementary schools were ranked 35th in reading scores and our middle schools were ranked 44th. We will continue to excel as a national innovative leader and we are committed to building better graduates in Henderson County Schools.”
