MODEL: Many great students, ONE great school!



Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues:
In his email last week, President Benson charged the Model Taskforce with engaging with Model and EKU faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni to build a shared vision and strategy to move Model forward in the face of looming fiscal and facilities challenges. This process will yield recommendations for a path forward that strengthens our ability to support student outcomes at Model, while honoring the uniqueness of the experience that is so valued and loved by Alumni and the many parents, grandparents, and community members with ties to the School.
The work of the task force began this week with the Model administrative team and will quickly proceed to parents, faculty, staff, teachers, students, alumni, community members, and local government representatives over the next several weeks. We ask that you participate in these discussions and provide input in all of the ways you feel comfortable doing so. As you can see from the timeline below, there are multiple opportunities to be involved and we deeply appreciate your efforts to enrich the dialogue as we search for the best path forward.

We will summarize all of the feedback provided through this process and use it to draft the recommendations presented to the Board of Regents in November. Once the recommendations are drafted, stakeholders will have an opportunity to discuss the recommendations prior to the presentation. The date for that event will be announced as soon as work is complete. Please contact us at if you have any questions about the events or timeline.
We are excited to work with all of you to find the best solutions to the challenges that face Model.
All the best,
Dr. David McFaddin
