Winners' Circle School


On Sept. 18, the Kentucky Department of Education recognized 10 public schools from across the Commonwealth for outstanding teaching and learning conditions. These “Winners’ Circle” schools were recognized for their effective teaching and school leadership practices and will be shared as models of best practices across the state. We are proud to announce that one of the 10 winners was Henry County High School, through the Carroll County Area Technology Center, from Henry County Public Schools!

The Winners’ Circle schools were selected based upon the results of the 2017 Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Kentucky Survey which was administered to all public school teachers and principals in March of this year.

“My congratulations to our 2017 TELL Kentucky Winners’ Circle Schools. With their participation, these schools have discovered the power to unlock information on critical teaching and learning conditions and harness it as part of the ongoing improvement planning process,” Kentucky Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt said. 

“Henry County High students serve as models at the local school level as well as being participants at the Carroll County Area Technology Center,” HCPS Superintendent Terry Price said. “It is important that we build leaders in our students and build capacity in our teaching staff.”

School, district and statewide results of the TELL survey, as well as the New Teacher Center’s Preliminary Findings, Guides, and Tools for Using the Data, can be viewed at The intent of this work is to provide schools, districts and the state with data that can be used to enhance school improvement efforts.
