     Many Kentuckians will never leave the continental United States in their lifetime. The majority of us probably don’t even own a passport. To some residents of the landlocked bluegrass state Florida might seem like a tropical paradise.

  • School board adds teaching position

     The LaRue County School Board approved the creation of a hearing impaired teacher at a special called meeting on Aug. 20.

  • On EDUCATING LARUE: Agencies help families, sponsor activities and clubs

     Providing the best academic instruction and tools is vital if a school wants to prepare students for their best opportunities for success after graduation.

    Important as these things are, however, there’s more to success than academics.  Other barriers exist that don’t deal directly with school subjects, including the need for referrals to health and social services; career exploration and development; summer and part-time job development (high school only); substance abuse education and counseling; and family crisis and mental health counseling.

  • School board approves new teaching position

     The LaRue County School Board approved the creation of a hearing impaired teacher at a special called meeting on Aug. 20.

    The school district already had a contract with Hardin County to provide the service to students.  However, the contract does not cover services to preschool students and there is a student within the district in need of that assistance.

  • First day enrollment remains stable

     A total of 2,310 students showed up for classes at LaRue County Schools for the first day on Aug. 8.

    The figure does not include enrollment at The Life Connection, an alternate school near Sonora.

    Last year’s first day enrollment was 2,353 which included 32 students at TLC.
