Summer P-EBT Benefits

Kentucky has been approved to provide summer P-EBT benefits as offered by the USDA. Please note the following important aspects of the approval:

  • All eligible students will receive the same total benefit amount of $375 for the covered summer period. The benefit will be a one-time deposit to the existing cards that should occur in August.
  • Summer P-EBT is an “extension” of the 2020-2021 P-EBT benefit, so all students that ended the school year as eligible will automatically receive the benefits, including students that graduated.

PLTW Distinguished School PLTW

Burnside Elementary has once again been recognized as a Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Distinguished School for increasing access, engagement, and achievement in our PLTW program. We are extremely proud of this award from an organization with national reach and presence.  Only 310 schools in the country are awarded this honor.

Burnside Elementary began offering PLTW in 2016-2017, and today, 100% of students in grades K-5 participate in our PLTW program. We’re inspiring and engaging students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and preparing them for success in their careers and beyond. Since PLTW, our students have improved their academic knowledge as well as their ability to reason and solve real world problems.  They have learned to work in teams and groups to solve a common problem.
