CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (8/16/12) - In June of 2012, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) selected two Calloway County School programs among only ten alternative education programs named as Best Practice Sites in Kentucky serving at-risk students. Both the Calloway County Alternative Education Center (AEC) and the Calloway County Day Treatment Center (DTC), were found to be exemplary in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment; Culture, Support, and Professional Development; and Leadership, Resources/Organization/Planning. The DTC collaborates with the Department of Juvenile Justice and the KY Educational Collaborative for State Agency Children and serves students from Calloway and Graves counties. Each program selected as a Best Practice Site received $1,000 to be used for instructional support.
At the August meeting of the Calloway County Board of Education, Connie Payne-Director of the DTC, Jerry Ainley- Head Teacher of the AEC, and the faculty and staff of both programs were recognized for their achievement and the $1,000 ceremonial checks were presented by Calloway County Superintendent of Schools, Kennith Bargo.
