  • LaRue schools close to state average on spending for school health services

    As schools across the Commonwealth, and the country, wrestle to improve test scores and other accountability measures, there is a growing awareness about the impact that factors such as children’s health and wellness have on school performance.

Until now, however, detailed information on school health services offered in Kentucky districts was not available.

    That’s according to the results of an experiment by Sam Grant, a fifth-grade student at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School who was participating in the district science fair where judging was completed March 19 at ALES.
    “My question I wanted to investigate was, ‘Can people in pain be distracted by other things that can lessen that pain?’” Grant said.
