  • Test scores show students are above or at state average

    LaRue County Schools’ eighth- and tenth-grade students scored well on the EXPLORE and PLAN statewide assessments given last fall, according to reports released this month.
    EXPLORE, given to eighth graders, is a predictor of high school readiness. PLAN, which sophomores take, predicts how well they will perform on the ACT, a college-readiness assessment.
