The mission of the Ashland Independent School District, as a standard of excellence in Kentucky and the nation, is to ensure for each student a globally comprehensive education in a positive, nurturing environment which provides individualized learning opportunities, produces responsible citizens and instills a desire for lifelong learning through quality instructional programs, sound fiscal management, visionary leadership, and a partnership involving home, school, and community.
Our community is blessed. We have a successful public school system with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community. A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the members who make up the Ashland Independent School District Board of Education.
