The LaRue County School Board approved early release days for students. Students will be dismissed at 1 p.m. every Friday next fall in order to provide teachers with more planning time.
The vote at Monday's meeting was unanimous, but some board members voiced concern that the two hours of instructional time lost each week equals 10 days off the school calendar - something that could be detrimental to students.
Board member Norbert Skees said his concern was that the early release would "send students the wrong message."
