• School Closings/Delays:

    Having been notified by appropriate officials that Magoffin County’s COVID-19 incident rate has exceeded the “critical” threshold as determined by the Kentucky Department for Public Health, Magoffin County Schools will temporarily suspend in class attendance for students until we are informed our incident rate has lowered. Beginning Monday, October 19, all classes will be virtual only until in class attendance can again be possible. We appreciate your patience and ask that any questions you have be asked of the school your child attends.

Welcome to the Magoffin County Extended School Services Webpage.
Extended School Services or "ESS" means instructional and support services provided by schools for students who need additional time to achieve academic expectations. ESS funds are allocated to the schools for the purpose of operating a program for students to reach short and long term goals. The major emphases of extended school services shall be:
  1. To enhance the present level of performance of students who are having difficulty in one or more content areas;
  2. To provide extended programming for students who have been retained or who are at risk of being retained in a class or grade or of failing to graduate on time or dropping out without additional assistance; and
  3.      To close the achievement gap of low-performing students so that the students will perform successfully in the instructional program appropriate to their age ranges.

Magoffin County Schools offer ESS programs through a variety of formats including after school sessions, before school sessions, daytime waiver sessions and jump start programs. The benefits of being part of ESS is:
  • Opportunities to build skills that enhance learning
  • Opportunities to receive help on homework or class assignments
  • A place to practice skills
  • Opportunities to receive remedial help for skills students may have not mastered
  • Achievement gaps may be addressed by providing more focused individualized instruction and enrichment
  • Students have the opportunity to retain and enhance what they are learning in the classroom
  • Students can work together and learn in smaller group settings
  • Students are offered a safe, and developmentally appropriate learning environment
