Superintendent's Message


Alan W. Reed
Superintendent

I am honored to lead a team of highly motivated educators whose common goal is academic excellence across all grades and disciplines.

We have made numerous gains in this district thanks to you, a forward-thinking board of education, and a supportive community.  This year we will witness even more gains driven by the Race to the Top initiative, Leader in Me, and PGES.

Students will have more choices and opportunities than ever before with the opening of a new satellite technology campus of Lake Cumberland Area Technology Center/KCTCS and thirty-nine (39) career paths leading to industry certifications in health care occupations and welding/metal fabrication.  We have forged partnerships with nine colleges and universities in order to address an array of interests and allow students to earn college credit or dual credit while still ACHS students.

Through learning checks and MAP, every school and teacher will share accountability and high expectations for student growth across four content areas from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  We fully intend to be laser focused on data, and will share student performance results at regular intervals.   These efforts will make “Early Release Fridays” even more valuable in each of our schools and will allow us to make quick adjustments based on student performance. 

As we begin this new school year, we are committed to providing rigorous, high quality educational experiences for all of our students.  At the same time I sincerely hope you find our district to be an invigorating place to work, and that you find personal fulfillment as a highly valued team member.  Our top priorities will always be educational excellence and accountability to our community. 

Alan W. Reed, Superintendent
