    For Eminence High School, results of the TELL Survey  – Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning, administered in the spring by the Kentucky School Board Association – is only one tool to be used when working to make improvements, according to Principal Steve Frommeyer.

    “We are very conscious about constantly trying to improve, regardless of the survey,” he said. “We have had a number of initiatives put in place this year for our school improvement plan,” and none of them were based squarely on the TELL results.

  • EIS, HCPS fail to make all NCLB goals

    According to data released Tuesday morning, just 42.6 percent of the state’s school districts met all of their NCLB goals. Neither Henry County Public nor Eminence Independent Schools were among those schools.

    Both districts failed to meet all of their NCLB goals; EIS met six of 10, while HCPS met eight of its 13 goals.

    While EIS fell short on meeting any of its math goal – as well as failing to meeting the math and reading goals for students on free/reduced lunch, HCPS failed to meet its reading goals.
