It's no secret that Breathitt County Schools have been going through some changes, but school coordinators say they are now going in the right direction.

“Our district and our county were in turmoil, and I think we are beyond that turmoil now. We have made positive changes, and I think everything is now in a better light,” said Director of Special Education Wayne Sizemore.

Now, new leadership has brought new challenges for teachers and students.

“I think we lost focus. I think that's a good way of putting it, and now [teachers] are coming back to, ok we've got to get kids to be college and career ready, said District Assessment Coordinator Donna Fugate.

They are aiming for high test scores and high spirits.

School leaders said there is a different kind of moral in the schools and you can feel it just by walking down the hallways.

“Our moral is much better. You can go into our schools now, and you can see a sense of change,” said Sizemore.

Changes that officials say no matter how difficult are worth the work.
