  • KYA offers students a ‘real-life’ government experience

    LaRue County High School delegates to this year’s Kentucky Youth Assembly not only learned about current issues but also gained insight into the political process.
    The Assembly, held in Frankfort and Louisville last month, was a hands-on learning experience where 45 Kentucky high school delegations wrote, debated, and voted on pieces of legislation which could affect the lives of Kentuckians.
    Ben Schell, an LCHS social studies teacher who is a co-adviser for the group, feels that KYA is an excellent opportunity for students.

  • 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.
