Portrait of a Graduate

What is “Portrait of a Graduate”?

During the Spring of 2021, Kenton City Schools District is creating a “Portrait of a Graduate” (POG) document.  It will serve as a collective vision that articulates the community’s aspirations for our students taken from community-wide conversations and survey as to what a KHS graduate should be able to accomplish, what they should know, and what character traits they will need to succeed in life.

Attend Virtual “Portrait of a Graduate” Community Meeting on February 18th

On Thursday, February 18th at 7 p.m., you’re invited to join our virtual Zoom Community MeetingTo attend, please register in advance at: https://go.kcs.me/pogregistration

To prepare for the meeting, we ask that you review the information and videos on this page about our District initiatives that are currently in place.  During the Community Meeting, you will be a guiding voice as to what 21st Century skills that our students need to navigate and thrive in this complex, rapidly-changing world.

Final “Portrait of a Graduate” Results

Many school systems across the country have engaged their communities in developing their own Portrait of a Graduate.  We are being guided through this process by Tricia Moore of Envision Ed Plus.  From the February 18th Community Meeting and POG survey feedback, our Steering Committee will create a final Portrait of a Graduate document that will be shared with the KCS Board of Education and public later this spring.
