    Heard one parent was saying her child was not being challenged academically enough. It may be good enough reason to claim financial hardship and send the kid back to the city where they live for free.

    Will Becky Houston still be coaching volleyball at Holy Cross? Will his sister be joining him at Cooper, if so, that would be a boost to the volleyball team at Cooper?

    From what I'm told, mom will still coach V-ball and sis will still go to the Cross.

    I seriously doubt they are hurting for money.

    Yup, several promises of boosting the curriculum that never happened. Oh and apparently the Para Professional coach likes to swear at the kids a lot.

    You wouldn't happen to have a copy of the schedule would you?

    Longbranch was a very small, windy back road that only people who lived on it would travel. Now it's had three or four large subdivisions added and two schools. Huge increase in traffic and not much improvement of the windy road.

    If parents are looking for a school to transfer to in Boone County and academics is a priority then they should look no further than Boone County High School. It's the #1 ranked school in the district. Shameless plug.

    Oh... and if they are athletes they will be welcomed to the team.

    I certainly think Camp Ernst is amazingly dangerous, and the number of major accidents on it over the last two years would back that up, but I've driven on Longbranch 10,000 times and it has never occurred to me as the least bit dangerous. The speeds are down between Orleans and Orleans, and the road is straight between Camp Ernst and that one little jog before you get to the new Irish neighborhood.

    Two years ago one of the parents of the players leaving was basically trying to steer a whole AAU team to Holy Cross. When the parent was unable to do so a thread like this popping up was just a matter of time. People are fickle.

    Just curious, when did that happen? All information I have ever seen indicates Ryle is the #1 school in the district followed by Conner and Cooper being virtually close at 2-3.

    Randall K. Cooper High School Boone County 74.1 Proficient

    KPREP 2016, other Kentucky school results

    Based on the KPREP test scores it's Boone County, Ryle, Conner, and lastly Cooper!
