New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School Corp.
The New Albany-Floyd County Consolidated School Corporation has always been a leader in academics. New Albany High School was the first public high school in Indiana, opening its doors in 1853. The Corporation has operated as a separate governmental unit since 1956, when it became the first combined city-county school corporation in the state. Nestled in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, the Corporation serves as a traditional symbol of progressive and visionary excellence. It’s enrollment totals approximately 11,500 students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 programs. The Corporation employs more than 1,200 full-time personnel, including approximately 750 teachers, and 375 part-time personnel.
Under the leadership of Dr. Bruce Hibbard, the New Albany Floyd County School Corporation has received the highest scores on ISTEP+ in the history of the district, with all grade levels achieving above state averages and one out of every three students achieving at the Pass+ level in mathematics. Additionally the Corporation has been recognized by the College Board as an Advanced Placement Program District of the Year for the second consecutive year – an award that has been received by only 88 school corporations in the nation.
Wyatt serves as counsel to the Corporation on general operational matters, and assisted with a $59 million bond issue in 2007.
