Boone County Schools, based in Florence, Kentucky, recognizes that all children can learn and dedicates itself to providing a challenging educational environment that allows each student to achieve to his or her highest potential as a learner and citizen. Through community, staff, and student conversations across the District, Boone County Schools gathered input on what the District’s residents think should be the future of education. With a goal to define what the community wants students to know for the future, the Boone County community developed the 10C’s: collaboration, communication, critical thinking, creativity, cultural competence, character, compassion, community connections, choice and challenge. The District’s plan is for all students to develop these skills through a commitment to three areas: Student Empowerment, World-Class Education, and Resource Optimization.
