Elkhorn Crossing School was recently recognized for scoring among the top 10 in Kentucky in Career Readiness based on state accountability data. An award for this distinction was presented by the Kentucky Association for Career and Technical Education at its annual conference. Principal Michelle Nichols commented on this honor.
“Recognition for students’ high achievement in attaining career readiness is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of ECS students and faculty and our commitment to academic, technical, and soft skills preparation.”
Nichols expressed her appreciation for the support of Scott County industry leaders and community partners who serve as advisory members ensuring ECS scholars are career ready post-graduation. Students demonstrate that they are career ready by meeting academic and technical benchmarks identified by the Kentucky Department of Education.
More than 800 students from Scott County High School and Scott County 9th Grade School will attend Elkhorn Crossing in the 2016-2017 school year. Villages at the school include Biomedical Sciences, Engineering, Health Science, Media Arts, and Law & Justice. ECS is an inquiry-based career and technical school where students strengthen critical thinking and problem solving skills through real world application and hands on learning.
