Since March 13th, 2020, when, due to the spread of COVID-19, students went home from their respective schools across the state to begin online learning, Anderson County Schools have provided all students within the district the opportunity to have free breakfast and lunch. Anderson County Schools were able to fund and provide those meals due to two mechanisms: the Summer Food Service Program and the Seamless Summer Option. However, recent changes in funding by the USDA meant that our district would have to begin charging for meals once again at several schools within Anderson County as early as this upcoming school year. That is, until decision-makers within our Central Office, led by Superintendent Sheila Mitchell and Director of Programs and Operations Ronnie Fields, put together a proposal for the School Board Meeting held on June 13th.

The Anderson Community Education (ACE) building is a brick building located at 219 East Woodford Street that many of us drive past perhaps without giving it a second thought. That is, until recently, when the grounds got a bit of sprucing up thanks to the Youth Leadership Anderson County (YLAC) group. The high school students who make up this group were painting, weeding, planting, mulching… and planning. Their planning vision board, the elements of which students have now been working toward for months, sits squarely in the kitchen of the ACE building. Scrawled on it is a list of steps and items needed to reach their ultimate goal: a student-focused community center that can provide aid for students with food insecurities, tutoring opportunities, a quiet place to study, a fun and safe place to gather, and even a place where students can do their laundry. Every item crossed from the list gets the students one step closer to that goal, a lofty feat for a program still in its infancy.

For the second year, Anderson County Public Schools will host a summer learning opportunity to help students reach mastery in identified academic skills and have the opportunity to bond with peers. The summer learning experience, called the Bearcat Learning Academy, will be open to the students who have been identified by faculty and staff at district schools who would benefit from additional instruction.

The job of the School Resource Officer, Sgt. Likins noted, is to bridge the gap. Likins stated, “When kids see who you are, you are another trusted adult in the school system. We are not just here to stop violence, though we are trained and prepared for that if needed; that’s the dark reason we are here. Even more importantly, though, we are here to build a rapport, to guide, and to teach.” It’s the vision that Superintendent Sheila Mitchell and Sherriff Joe Milam envisioned when they collaborated in a shared plan to have not only the best but also the safest schools in the state. That vision involved hiring an SRO for every school in the district, years before it became a state requirement, as it only did just a few weeks ago when Governor Andy Beshear signed House Bill 63 into law on April 8th, 2022 that each campus in the state must have an SRO by August 1st, 2022. In that regard, Anderson County Public Schools have been forward thinking on school safety.
