All Webster County administrators, directors and instructional coaches participated in a leadership retreat that was held at the Toyota Plant in Princeton, Indiana on July 8th. The team read the book, "The Toyota Way," and followed this with a retreat at the Toyota Plant. The team took a tour of the plant and plant representatives spoke to the team about "the Toyota Way" which is based on the principles of teamwork and continuous improvement. 

Dr. Yarbrough led the leadership team in discussions around her vision for the district for the upcoming school year. "We are going to make a shift in this district to focus on the leaner. We have done a good job aligning our curriculum and providing instructional supports for our teachers the past two years. It is now time to shift our focus to the learner. We will design lessons that focus on the engagement of all learners, and students and teachers will be collaborative partners in their learning. Additionally, our district will have two "Students Take the Lead" days in our calendar this school year."

The leadership team met with the Webster County Board of Education on July 11th to develop the district's commitment to create high quality learning experiences for students. The district developed a draft "CRUX 7" set of guiding principles that will provide the foundation of our district's commitment to learner-focused schools. The first two beliefs that will be universal throughout the district are:  
(1) We will treat every individual with genuine, positive regard  
(2) We will commit to continuous learning and growing for all 
All schools and district departments will develop their own CRUX beliefs that will be added to the district's top two beliefs on opening day activities.

“We have reshaped what’s going on with early childhood in Webster County schools,” Superintendent Rachel Yarbrough said. “It’s not just K-12 for us anymore. We are just as committed to what’s happening in Alpha Academy as we are in what’s happening in high school algebra.” 
The two day care centers, licensed to Webster County Schools and staffed by Head Start employees, are located at Providence and Sebree elementaries. Each has two classrooms outfitted for day care and early learning.

Dr. Yarbrough was one of four superintendents in the state invited to participate in a panel discussion for state superintendents at the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA)Annual Leadership Institute in Louisville, KY on July 16th.  Dr. Yarbrough, Kathy Burkhardt-Erlanger-Elsmere Independent Schools, Nannette Johnston-Hardin County Schools, and Henry Webb-Floyd County Schools, shared their visions for early childhood education, explained how each had established early childhood partnerships in their districts, and discussed early childhood initiatives that were taking place in each of their districts. The discussion provided an opportunity for their colleagues from around the state to hear about the innovative ways the panelists have found to collaborate and build meaningful relationships with community partners to improve early childhood outcomes and close the readiness gaps in their districts. The session also served as the official launch of the new KY Superintendent School Readiness Toolbox which can be found on the Kentucky Department of Education website under Educational Programs at  www.education.ky.gov.

Webster County Leadership Summit 2015

Webster County Administrators and Directors met with the Board of Education in a Leadership Summit on July 13, 2015 at the UK Extension Office in Dixon. The summit was the culminating activity of a two-day WC Leadership Retreat. Board members and administrators shared a meal and participated in a "1WC" team building activity. Dr. Yarbrough facilitated a "SWOT" (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) discussion. Participants were asked to review the "SWOT" feedback obtained one year ago at this event and then answer the same questions based on the past school year. The group compared the feedback and determined that most of the district's weaknesses discussed at last summer's summit had been corrected this school year. Leadership will continue to work to make WC Schools second to none.
