Wednesday, the LaRue County school district received the second annual Dr. Johnnie Grissom Award (Strive for Achievement Through Instructional Equity) from the Kentucky Board of Education.
"Two areas of recognition should be noted in regard to the work that the district has done with students with disabilities," said Kentucky Board of Education Chair David Karem. "One is the progress made in the increase of students with disabilities scoring proficient/distinguished on state assessments, and the other is the degree of implementation of the "least restrictive environment" for these students."
The district was nominated by the chair of the LaRue County Board of Education, Anita Cruse. The district was selected for the award based on its efforts to improve instructional equity.
