Hello WCPS Families, 

With the state assessment window quickly approaching, I want to commend our faculty and staff members, community partners and our families for your dedicated efforts to ensure our students succeed. In order to reach the goals we have established for our students, it takes all of us and I am grateful to each of you for your contributions in helping Warren County Public Schools (WCPS) be the best place for students to learn, teachers to teach and parents to send their children. Although assessment results are only one measurement of our success, we fully recognize the importance of our students demonstrating their knowledge and understanding each year on the Kentucky Summative Assessment.

If you have driven by I-65 lately, you may have noticed the old Cumberland Trace Elementary has disappeared and we will be breaking ground soon on the Impact Center for Leadership & Innovation at this site. This exciting partnership with FranklinCovey promises to elevate WCPS’ commitment to developing leadership in each of our students while providing learning opportunities that are second to none. Our team has been busy over the past 2+ years in the design and development phase of the IMPACT Center and we will be announcing additional partners, both local and global in the near future. Our current plans call for program offerings for students in grades 7-12  and the scheduled opening is August, 2026. With a heavy emphasis on computer science, artificial intelligence, engineering, entrepreneurship, medical arts and a couple pathways yet to be finalized, we are proud of the Board’s vision and commitment toward innovation.

In a unique partnership, WCPS Tech Department technicians and the STLP state award-winning Help Desk students of Warren Central High School held the district's 2nd Repair-A-Palooza!  The goal is to ready all instructional Chromebooks in preparation for testing and to give our WCHS Help Desk students expanded opportunities to learn device repair and help desk operations. As an added bonus, a local business partner, UBreakIFix, brought additional device types for the students to learn to repair such as phones and gaming consoles!  UBreakIFix will be offering the students a certification program (WISE certification) opportunity that UBreakIFix employees must complete for employment. 

Recently, we were excited to welcome back and induct 12 incredible graduates into WCPS’ Hall of Distinguished Alumni at the Sloan Convention Center on April 12, 2024! It was a special honor to connect with our alumni and hear about their accomplishments and contributions since graduating from WCPS! To read more about these remarkable inductees, click here.

Greenhouses are open for the season at each of our high schools until they sell out! Our students have worked extremely hard to grow and nurture these plants. It’s amazing to see our students excel in this project-based learning year after year that ultimately benefits our greater community!

With the last day of school quickly approaching, it won’t be long before we honor our current seniors during their graduation ceremonies at Diddle Arena on Western Kentucky University’s campus. Our graduation dates and times are as follows: 

  • Friday, May 24, 2024  -     Warren Central High School at 6:00 p.m.

  • Saturday, May 25, 2024 - Warren East High School at 9:00 a.m.

We wish our senior class the best of luck moving forward and please know that we remain committed to providing support for our graduates well after graduation. As always, if we can ever assist your child or family in any way, please do not hesitate to call upon us.
