There are six K-12 public school systems in the region – three each in Boyd and Greenup counties – each committed to ensuring students a comprehensive education in a positive and nurturing environment. All are accountable to the high standards of the Kentucky Educational Reform Act, which is one of the country’s most comprehensive educational reform efforts.
