  • State budget could deal serious blow to LaRue schools

    If Governor Matt Bevin’s budget passes, LaRue County Schools could face more than $1 million in new financial liability in the 2018-19 fiscal year.

    The steepest of the governor’s cuts pulls back state funding for student transportation from about 57 percent to 25 percent of the costs. This shifts a new $550,198 responsibility to LaRue County Schools.
