• LCS explores Digital Learning Initiative funding

    With the 2016-17 school year underway, LaRue County Schools again are equipping every high school and middle school student with a laptop computer, but the Digital Learning Initiative’s long-term future is uncertain.

    The school district’s overall financial needs have prevented saving for replacement computers, and now funding for new computers may not be in place when student laptops begin wearing out.

    At first, the initiative provided 800 laptops to LaRue County High School students and 55 laptops for teachers.
