  • LaRue County schools adopts new assesment system

    LaRue County school administrators say Kentucky’s receiving a waiver from the No Child Left Behind education law is a positive step.
    “I really think the change is a good change. Actually, I haven’t talked to any educator who thought NCLB should continue,” Superintendent Sam Sanders said.
    The waiver means that Kentucky can use a new and more flexible assessment system, Unbridled Learning, which it has developed, to determine progress in schools instead of the federally-mandated NCLB.

  • Lee lands $21,000 per year scholarship to JBU

    A phone call turned into a pleasant surprise for LaRue County High School senior Zach Lee last week.
    A representative of John Brown University was on the other end of the line, offering Lee a $21,000 per year scholarship to the prestigious Arkansas school.
    “They called me to the office, saying I was being interviewed for a newspaper story on my taking an online college course,” the Hodgenville resident said.  “As soon as I heard the man speak, though, I recognized him as being from John Brown University.”
