FOUR MCPS Schools Receive Blue Rating

The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has released its annual School Report Card for the 2022-2023 school year, and overall, McCracken County Public Schools (MCPS) have rated higher than state averages. In fact, MCPS outperformed the state averages in all categories: reading, mathematics, science, social studies, and writing in all three levels- elementary, middle, and high. 


The accountability system through the state is color-coded, with rankings going from red, orange, yellow, green, and blue, with red being the worst and blue being the best. Those rankings are determined from six indicators including assessment results in reading and mathematics, results in science, social studies and writing, English learning progress, quality of school climate and safety, postsecondary readiness for high schools, and graduation rate.


MCPS had four schools in blue, five schools in green, and two schools in yellow.


McCracken County elementary schools overall received a green rating which is the second highest rating a school can receive. Four elementary schools received a blue rating which is the highest rating a school can receive- Lone Oak Elementary, Hendron-Lone Oak Elementary, Concord Elementary, and Heath Elementary. 


Lone Oak Middle, Reidland Middle, and Heath Middle all received a green rating while McCracken County High School and Reidland Elementary received a yellow rating. 


 “The schools have been working since August with preliminary data to identify individual student progress and to see how those students scored in relation to the standards that are being taught in the classrooms,” said Assistant Superintendent Michael Ceglinski.  “We celebrate and recognize the hard work of our staff and students and will continue to implement our plans to increase student achievement for next year.”
