of declining enrollment.

intellectual capital to invigorate learning became a priority in shifting the school's
focus to career readiness.

skills in practical ways.
The program also includes
brainstorming sessions, field
trips and classroom visits.
The school partners with
the Discovery Cube Science
Center of Orange County
for additional learning
opportunities.

INITIATIVE: Each classroom partners with a local
business-from eateries and
technology leaders to police
departments and medical professionals-so that
students can explore careers
and engage in hands-on
problem-solving. Business
partners help students learn
new technology skills that
apply to their industry, and
explore how to use those

IMPACT: "Our schoolwide career-exploration
emphasis has transformed
student dialogue to include
language of college and
career interest," says communications specialist
Nichole Pichardo. Since
implementation, enrollment has grown by nearly
30 percent while Smarter
Balanced and ELA scores
have increased.

ADVICE: Provide time for
teachers to work collaboratively on research, planning
and professional development. Also, seek community
partners at local chambers of
commerce, volunteer clubs,
and senior centers, among
other organizations.

CAREER CONNECTIONS-
Local business partners
and medical professionals
engage students in Brea
Olinda USD to learn about

We Will Find A Way: Meeting Student Needs
Owsley County School District
Booneville, Kentucky

CHALLENGE: Owsley County Schools, located in the
nation's third-poorest county, has struggled with declines
in income, population and employment. Just 17 percent
of county residents age 25 and over have a bachelor's
degree or higher. Residents also rank in the bottom 25
percent nationally for lifespan.
INITIATIVE: The district strives to support the entire
community's educational, physical and social-emotional
health. In the classroom, it offers new online instruction, expanded tutoring, 1-to-1 devices and dual-credit
courses. In the community, it provides K6 dental care,
telemedicine for staff and students, weekend food assistance, employment programs and free Life Flight medevac service. "Owsley County Schools is taking a whole
child, family and community approach with the goal of
improving not only student success but improving com-

munity life," says media specialist Tina Bobrowski.
IMPACT: More than one-quarter of high school students
are enrolled in at least one college course, and two students will graduate with an associate degree. The number of students considered college and career ready has
increased from 7 percent to 84 percent, while nearly 30
students participate in the community work-transition
program. In 2016, the graduation rate rose to 91.3 percent and the 2017 graduating class earned $437,050 in
scholarships.
ADVICE: Administrators must be aware of current school
and community statistics. Districts should set lofty service goals, but must partner with community, state and
federal agencies, including hospitals, local colleges and
universities, as well as nonprofit foundations.
