Dear Mayfield City Schools Residents, 

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! Students and staff coming back to school is one of my favorite times of year.  Last year, our students and staff received numerous recognitions and awards for their accomplishments in and out of the classroom. I suspect this year will be no different. Mayfield City Schools continue its tradition of academic excellence while being a leader in innovative programs that prepare students to find their purpose and pursue their passions. Please take the time to read the 2017 Quality Profile . This report will give you a comprehensive look at how we prepare students for success now and in the future.

The Mayfield Vision and Quality Improvement Process is the driving force for continuing to do what we do well, do what we do well –better and inventing for relevancy. The Mayfield Vision is comprised of four Quality Improvement Pillars. They are:

  • Student learning and Academic Excellence

  • Fiscal Stewardship and Operations

  • Growing Leadership, Talent and Professional Capacity

  • Community relations and Family Partnerships

We are able to advance the Mayfield Vision because of your strong financial support and involvement in our schools. Please read our Mayfield Vision: 2015-2019 to view past, present and future Quality Improvement initiatives.

There are several exciting initiatives planned for this year. Here a few examples.

Student Learning and Academic Excellence

  • Every high school student will receive a Chromebook and use it to personalize learning, increase understanding and collaborate with classmates. Students will be able to research, work on projects and complete assignments anywhere at any time. Our goal is for our students to be more engaged in rigorous and meaningful learning that reflects how our world works and learns.

  • There will be an increase in Cross-curricular Project/Product Based Learning opportunities that will involve business partnerships. Our goal is to provide real-world, authentic learning experiences that will inspire students to engage and find meaning in their work.

  • Makerspaces in each elementary building will enhance our students’ abilities to create, tinker and innovate while learning and understanding various technologies.

Fiscal Stewardship and Operations

  • Phase 1 of the Middle School HVAC and renovations project is complete. Students and staff now have improved classrooms and air conditioning on the top floor of the building.

  • Improvements to the high school gym, band room and choir room are complete. These spaces are a wonderful improvement for our students, staff and community and reflect our Mayfield pride.  There are plans to also make improvements to the high school auditorium.

  • Plans are underway to create learning spaces that reflect modern day work environments that are conducive to Cross-curricular Project/Product Based Learning. There will be more use of classroom furniture that is adaptable to interactive, individual and collaborative learning settings.

  • The Construction Trades, Cosmetology and Career-Based Intervention programs will have new and improved spaces by mid-year.

Growing Leadership, Talent and Professional Capacity

  • Our staff has worked hard to prepare for the upcoming school year. They have received training and professional development in instructional leadership, technology, literacy and instructional methods.

  • One of our teachers spent several days working with engineers, designers and educators from around the world learning how to incorporate fabrication lab techniques into the curriculum.

Community Relations and Family/Business Partnerships

  • The Wildcat Community Foundation has committed to supporting instructional innovation. Their role is to advise, provide financial support, sponsor events and be a think tank for innovation.

  • The Mayfield APP is now available. You can download it for free from your devices APP or Play store. The Mayfield APP is an easy one- stop shop for loads of information about Mayfield City Schools

We thank our community for the tremendous support we receive.

I wish the students and their families a great 2017-18 school year.

Go Wildcats!

Keith Kelly, Superintendent
