According to Superintendent Jesse Bacon, aspirations define the future the district seeks.
“They were created by the Bullitt County Board of Education with feedback from the Strategic Advisory Team” he explained. “They are free of specific programs, processes, or initiatives because the professional team within Bullitt County Public Schools will need to choose and adapt actual work over time to achieve these aspirations. Each statement includes the major long-term measures of success as envisioned by the senior leadership and the Board.”
The five Aspiration Statements and their measurable objectives are:
Assure Our Graduates Are Immediately Ready to Succeed in Life
- Academic achievement performance index
- Percent of graduates who are career and/or college-ready as measured by transition readiness on the state report card
- Percent of students formally assessed on all Graduate Profile components.
Provide a Solid, Useful Education that is Valued by Students, Parents, Educators, Staff, Community Members and Businesses
- One and five year follow up survey of graduate success (career, military, postsecondary, education, mission work, etc.)
- Satisfaction of stakeholder groups with the value of education (annual survey).
Achieve Student Success cost effectively
- Cost per successful student (Kalmus Ratio).
Be a National Leader in Educational Innovation and Performance
- Number of educators from Kentucky and beyond who come to the district to learn (reported by key process area)
- Number of staff who are asked to present at state and national conferences
- Number of staff who have education related published works
Collaborate with Business, Education Providers, and the Community to Maximize Student Learning Options
- Percent of students participating in voluntary educational experiences
- Percent of high school students participating in work-based learning opportunities
- Number of teacher externships
Copies of the Aspiration Statements can be found in all schools, the central office and on the district website.
