Congratulations to Owensboro Independent Schools! An assessment by has led to a ranking of SIXTH among all school districts in Kentucky!

What's more, they were named the SAFEST of 166 school districts surveyed in the Commonwealth.

In another category, Best Places to Teach, Owensboro Schools came in third.

There were eight categories that made up each school district's "report card."

Those categories are Academics, Teachers, Diversity, College Prep, Clubs & Activities, Health & Safety, Administration, Sports, Resources & Facilities, and Food.

A grade of "A+" was given in five of those categories: Clubs & Activities, Health & Safety, Administration, Resources & Facilities, and Food.

What a tremendous and reassuring honor for Owensboro Public Schools! Way to Go!
