Who Doesn't Love a Roller Coaster?

            As part of our third grade physics unit about determining patterns in motion, the students built roller coasters…on the exterior walls of the Adair County Elementary School! Students worked their way to this culminating performance task by investigating the effects of ramps, friction, and gravity. They measured height and length, calculated average speed and time, predicted, recorded data and wrote conclusions. They were so persistent in their efforts and problem solving we just had to share their success with the community. The only materials we used were some locally purchased piping insulation, marbles, masking tape, and a sturdy wall. Definitely, try this at home!  

Over $500,000 in Technology Advancement

It is an exciting time in the Adair County Schools right now. We are in the process of purchasing mobile computer devices in the form of Chromebooks and mini IPads that will create a 1 device to 2 student ratio across the district and completely rebuilding our computer network to support our needs currently as well as the foreseeable future. The 2016-2017 school year will be the dawning of a new day in Adair County Schools.  Superintendent Reed said it best “installation of the new fiber optic infrastructure and a 1:2 computer or device ratio per child, puts Adair County Schools out front and ahead of many districts in Kentucky.  We are also adding high speed wireless access points in schools and classrooms all over our district so that students can learn anywhere they need to be and not tied to desks. When students and teacher return to school this fall, they will enter a whole new era for technology in our schools.”
