Instructional Rounds- Bourbon County High School

September 2016

What a wonderful day to observe learning at BCHS!  I can’t tell you enough how proud I am of our high school.  The faculty and staff members have created such a positive, warm, and safe learning environment for all students.  High expectations were seen many times throughout the instructional rounds process.  The student engagement was the greatest I have ever observed.  BCHS educators have done an excellent job with using cell phones in a positive way.  Cell phones were being used as learning tools during our observations.  I appreciate the high expectations and the many different instructional strategies that were being implemented.  I saw lots of student centered learning, high level discussions, and problem solving.  The student behavior at Bourbon County High School is excellent.  We need to invite others in to see what exemplary student behavior and classroom management looks like.  Students were very kind and respectful.  Our teachers and staff members have been great role models for our students.  I wish BCHS the best of luck this year!
