Ballard Memorial High School was one of only 24 of Kentucky’s 228 high schools that earned a Blue (best) rating in the state’s school accountability system. Ballard County Middle earned Green, rising from last year’s Yellow; Ballard County Elementary earned a Yellow rating, but only 3.0 points out of Green. Kevin Estes, chief academic officer for the district, said “I am excited to see the continued progress and growth in our students, teachers, and schools. Overcoming those COVID years has been tough for all. We are now seeing the fruits of everyone's hard work and dedication to grow our students personally and academically. This progress is due to the efforts of all of our stakeholders - students, teachers, parents and community members.”
