How Our School Ensures Educational Equity:
The Meade County High School Comprehensive School Improvement Plan addresses equity issues, involving race, gender, socioeconomic status, disabilities, and giftedness. Our goal is to create an educational environment with equal opportunities for all students. The administrative and teaching staff looks for gaps in achievement and attempts to bridge those gaps with strategies such as the establishment of the Freshman Academy, ESS, credit retrieval, summer school sessions, counseling, inclusion, collaboration, staff professional development, and parental contacts. We want to make sure that our most advanced students are stretched to the maximum of their potential, our average students are propelled to the next plateau, and make sure our struggling students are identified and provided the resources needed to succeed at the highest level.
