A public hearing pertaining to the design, planning, and implementation of four federal programs under the Elementary Secondary Education Act (No Child Left Behind) is set at 4:30 p.m. Thursday on April 14, 2016, in the Grove Tower Building conference room prior to the Henry County Board of Education meeting.
The hearing is open to all school personnel and parents of students in Henry County Schools.
Comments may be made on Title I – Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged; Title II, Part A – Improving Teacher Quality; Title III – English Language Acquisition/Language Enhancement/Academic Achievement; and Title VI, Part B, Subpart 2 – Rural and Low-Income School (RLIS).
The district parent involvement plan will also be discussed. The plan is posted on the Central Office bulletin board and can also be found on the Henry County School System website, www.henryk12.net. Click on Our District, Departments, Federal Projects, Parent Involvement Plan.
All Henry County High School students will be testing on Tuesday, April 19, 2016.
Tuesday, April 19th will be a big day for Henry County High School since all grades will be participating in testing on this day. The 10th and 11th graders will get the opportunity to take an ACT. The juniors will be taking the official ACT, while the sophomores will be taking a retired, full-length practice ACT. This test day represents a goal that the HCHS students have worked toward all year, all in the hopes that they will earn composite scores high enough to earn them scholarship money for college.
The 12th graders will get to take the National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) exam, which is also a test product of ACT. The Henry County School System is proud to partner with both the County Mayor and City of Paris Mayor’s Office, which received a grant that will provide funds to cover the cost of their testing. Both the County and City Mayors’ offices are coming together to offer prizes to the seniors for their participation that day, as well as provide lunch for all students and staff. But perhaps the best incentive for seniors to participate that day is the chance to achieve NCRC certification, which can give them an advantage of being hired over non-NCRC applicants at local industries, as well as other industries across the country. Additionally, students who receive a silver rating on all three portions of the test will able to graduate with distinction.
HCHS will run on its normal schedule on April 19. It will be a regular school day and attendance will be taken. Students are encouraged to get a good night’s rest on Monday night so that they will be focused and ready. They should dress comfortably but within dress code. It is also strongly advised that the students eat a healthy breakfast at home, or take advantage of free breakfast at school.
Eleventh graders are asked to have their student IDs to present at the start of testing. All students should also bring sharpened Number 2 pencils. Appropriate calculators will be provided to students who are allowed to use them. Due to ACT testing security requirements, students will be required to power off their cellphones and put them away.
“Since the ACT is crucial to our students’ future, we are happy to share these testing opportunities with our community,” says Mr. Lennies McFerren, Principal of Henry County High School.
