Students in Scott County head back to school

It's back to the books this week for many Kentucky school children.

Fayette County Schools start Thursday, but Scott County students returned to the classroom today.

Teachers and staff at Stamping Ground Elementary welcomed back around 350 students Tuesday morning.

We're told things went off without a hitch, but there were still some standard first day jitters.

"When the kids walk across the sidewalk, happy to see you, bringing in their things, so excited, it really reminds you why you really do this," Stamping Ground Elementary Principal Paul Krueger said.

This will be a year of adjustment for students and staff. Some are calling Senate Bill 1 the second largest education reform in Kentucky history.

The bill changes what's taught, when it's taught, and how student learning is measured.

"From the way we assess, to when we teach certain language arts and math things," Krueger said. "It will be a challenging year, but we feel well prepared for it."

Schools are still reporting first day numbers to the main office in Scott County.

Last year, more than 8,000 Scott County students reported to class for the first day.
