The district will open on Aug. 10 for students, with Monday-Friday in-person instruction. Masks will be optional in the buildings but required on buses (per CDC rules). A virtual option will be available for our highest-medical needs students, via an application process. Watch Superintendent Dr. Casey Allen's video, or read the details on our webpage, www.ballard.kyschools.us.
The American Rescue Plan act was signed into law in March 2021, dedicating funds for K-12 schools through the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) fund program. Ballard County Schools is seeking feedback from our stakeholders to address these items and help develop our plan related to ARP ESSER III funds, and we'd appreciate your help, by taking a brief survey.
The 13th annual “Bomber Back-to-School Bash” will be held Saturday, July 31, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. All students in the district will register for class, and receive orientation information at all of Ballard’s schools. (A complete schedule of class orientations is posted with this story.) A district-wide safety update will be held at 11 a.m., and all parents are invited.
