Governors Minority Scholarship Preparation Program (GMSCPP)
The Governors Minority Scholarship Preparation Program (GMSCPP) is being offered at Kentucky State University. This program is available for middle school students in the 6th and 7th grade and is designed to be enrichment meetings to increase and support student STEM interest.

      1. There is no cost to the students and families. The KSU GMSCPP will pay for lunches and any travel. Students who attend the statewide conference will also have travel and accommodations provided through the KSU GMSCPP.

      2. The program is designed for any interested students. There are no specific academic requirements and the activities are not designed to be tutoring sessions. We simply ask that the students have some interest in STEM areas or they will likely not enjoy the academic enrichment activities.

      3. Students do not have to make every meeting – although we would want them to make as many as possible. We understand there are some conflicts with family events and school-based extracurricular activities as well as illnesses. The application and a flyer with more information is attached.  

Washington DC Registration/Scholarship Forms
8th grade Washington, D.C. registration has no deadline until the tour is full. There are no penalties to register late. Scholarship forms can be picked up in the office and due by Dec. 1st.  
Message from the Principal
Congratulations Bondurant Middle School staff, students, parents and community members. Based on the release of test scores, we are a "Proficient-High Performing School". This is all due to a great collaboration between all stake holders. I am proud at how hard everyone has worked to achieve this goal.

We will have a day of celebration soon, but wanted to notify all parties of the good news.

Have a great Fall Break!
Casey R. Sparrow, Principal
Grade Scale Change
The Franklin County School Board last night responded to requests from the school councils of the district’s high and middle schools by approving a change to the grading scale for students in grades 4 through 12. The new scale will bring the Franklin County Public Schools in line with many other school districts that have made this change, and it will help more of our students qualify for the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), which helps pay for college for a large number of our students. The KEES program provides scholarships to students who earn at least a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) each year of high school. The new grading scale will take effect immediately. The following table shows the previous grading scale with the old figures crossed out and the new figures in red:


92 – 100 90 - 100


83 – 91 80 - 89


74 – 82 70-79


65 – 73 65-69


Below 65

The change applies to grades 4 and 5 in order to bring them in line with the middle and high schools, and to facilitate the transition from elementary to middle school. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this change. Sincerely, Casey Sparrow, Principal
