COVINGTON, Ky. -- Wednesday marks the first day of the new school year for several Northern Kentucky school districts, one of which is now among the largest districts in the state.
Boone County, Campbell County, Kenton County and Covington Independent will all hear the familiar sound of sneakers in the halls once again.
The Kenton County school district added more than 30 teachers for the 2014/2015 school year, bolstering them to become the fifth largest school district in the state.
Kenton County's superintendent, Dr. Terri Cox-Cruey, has been pushing to build a stronger curriculum by providing more training for teachers.
She says the connection between teachers and students is the foundation for success.
Cox-Cruey has already made an impact on the district, garnering national attention for its healthy school lunches.
She said she's ready for what the new school school year will bring.
"This time of the year parents are usually ready to turn their students back over to us, and we are ready to take them on and take their energy and enthusiasm and make us a better school district," said Cox-Cruey.
