BGISD SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION

Per recommendation from Governor Beshear, Bowling Green City Schools will not return for in-person instruction or activities this school year. School districts have been given flexibility for calculating hours of instruction through NTI (non-traditional instruction), which could change our last day of school. The Bowling Green Board of Education will meet on Monday, April 27th at 2:00 p.m.to determine the last day of NTI for students, the last contract day for employees, and options to celebrate graduation for the Class of 2020. The meeting will be broadcast on the district’s Facebook live.

  • The Kentucky Department of Education has been informed by USED that the waiver for assessment and accountability meets requirements and has been tentatively approved.  The state should receive formal approval in the coming days.  As a result, Kentucky will cancel the administration of the K-PREP assessment for the 2019-2020 school year. (March 24)
