Early enrollment for Kindergarten

According to KRS 158.030(2), there is a new cutoff date starting next school year to enroll your child in Kindergarten. Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, children must be (5) years of age as of August 1, instead of the October 1. 

A waiver for children to start kindergarten who are not yet (5) years of age as of August 1, may be granted through the Petition for Early Enrollment Form process. Deadline to request this option is April 1, per district policy 09.121.

Your child will go through an evaluation process, which will give important information to the district about the best placement for your child.  Your child is required to pass with a 95% in all areas of the Early Screener Tool. Other factors to consider, other than student readiness, will be availability of funding and space. The district will use this information to decide whether to admit your child for early enrollment.

Please contact the school that your child will be attending in order to get this process started. Contact personnel for your school will be following…

Sherri Kissick, Owingsville Elementary (606-674-2722) or

 Beth Williams, Crossroads Elementary (606-674-2101).

Bath County Food Services

The Bath County Schools’ Food Service Department, would like to take this opportunity to emphasize the importance of your child participating in the school’s free lunch program, also known as the Community Eligibility Provision Your child’s participation in this program, not only provides nutritious meals for your child, but also helps many struggling families in our community.

Stressing the importance of a great start to the school day, by your child eating a well-balanced breakfast and lunch, is essential! We understand that our participation in the National School Lunch program, restricts our menus to certain guidelines, but our schools do work hard to provide nutritious, well-balanced and appetizing meals to all students in the district. Your child’s lack of participation for this free service, may affect the district’s future participation in the Community Eligibility Provision program. If you have further questions please call Vickie Wells, SND at 606-674-6314.

WHAS Crusade for Children Partnership with Bath County Schools

WHAS Crusade for Children Partnership Provides Sensory Materials and Equipment Funding for Bath County Schools

Bath County Schools has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the WHAS Crusade for Children. The funds will provide sensory materials and equipment for students at Owingsville Elementary and Crossroads Elementary. These materials and equipment will give special needs students a place to get away from a sometimes overstimulating school environment. This can also provide a space for students to become more open to exploring their environment. According to district Special Education Director Kim Whitt, “The materials will fill a vast need for the district. Teachers will be able to use these new materials to address each child's pattern of sensory processing to help students better adapt to the school environment. The grant will be divided equally among the two schools, and the materials and equipment should be outfitted and ready for students within the first eight weeks of school.
