  • LaRue schools prep for new test

    Test data produced from next spring’s statewide public schools’ assessment will, in many ways, be a great change from the past.
    The academic indices districts and schools received from the previous system, CATS (Commonwealth Accountability Testing System) will be replaced by percentages, meaning that in many cases the scores under the new Unbridled Learning system will be lower than previous results; some will be higher, but almost all will be different.

  • Apply early for FAFSA

     Kentucky students planning to attend an in-state college or university beginning in fall 2012 should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after Jan. 1. Filing early increases a student’s chance of receiving a state need-based grant administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority. The FAFSA is available at www.fafsa.gov.

  • Campbellsville University students plan mission trip to Haiti

    Hannah White, a junior from Hodgenville, and Kayla Bradshaw, a junior from Summersville, will travel to Haiti for a Christmas break mission trip with Campbellsville University.

    The students, part of the School of Nursing, will have four days of medical clinic.

    They saw 1,800 patients last year and hope to see even more this year. Because there is no board of nursing in Haiti, the students are allowed to do more than in the U.S., but typically they give out medications, injections and help those who may have vitamin deficiencies.
