  • LCS enrollment, state funding expected to drop

    LaRue County Schools officials forecast an average daily attendance of 2,149 students for the 2016-17 school year, a decrease of 35 students, which would prompt a reduction in state funding.

    “Average daily attendance typically fluctuates, but we are troubled by the decrease because it will be the sixth time annual average daily attendance has dropped in eight years,” said Superintendent Sam Sanders. “That’s a net loss of 76 students since the 2009-10 school year.”
