The Christian County Public School System, led by Superintendent Chris Bentzel, is focused on student achievement and is reaping the benefits of not missing any school days this year due to winter weather.
During a recent appearance on WHOP, Bentzel discussed the rarity of not missing any days of school in January for western Kentucky and expressed his hope that this trend will continue. He believes that consistency in attendance will significantly benefit student achievement and learning.
The district has also recently announced steps towards consolidating high school sports by the start of the 2024-25 school year. One of these steps includes Christian County High School stepping up to the largest classification for football in the coming year. Bentzel is hopeful that the district will be in a place for athletics to merge by the fall 2024.
Bentzel also reminded the community that the annual State of the Schools breakfast would be held on Tuesday at 7:30 am at the Bruce Convention Center. Anyone planning to attend is encouraged to RSVP with the Christian County Chamber of Commerce.
Overall, the Christian County Public School System, under the leadership of Bentzel, is committed to providing the best education and opportunities for its students. They are constantly looking for ways to improve and ensure student success, which is evident in their efforts to maintain consistent attendance and their plan to consolidate high school sports. The community is encouraged to support the school district by attending events such as the State of the Schools breakfast and staying informed of their progress.
