  • Schools prepare for spring testing; counselor anticipates retirement

    LaRue County Schools are looking for progress in each of the areas tested as the district enters statewide spring testing.
    All schools continue to prepare for the reading, math, science and writing assessments in various ways.  Summer Garris, senior class adviser and LaRue County High School teacher, said her school is using a spinoff of a television series to go with a “Survivor-Ramp Up” theme that includes an acronym designed to help students ready themselves for the tests.  

  • School lunch prices will rise with new law

    LaRue County Schools seem better prepared than many other districts to implement the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s proposed nutrition changes intended to combat childhood obesity and malnutrition.
    The first rewrite of school-meal rules in 15 years, the proposed standards aim to cut sodium, boost the amount and types of fruits and vegetables students are offered, cut saturated fat, increase whole grains, and limit calories.

  • College tuition assistance available

    In Kentucky, veterans, active duty military personnel and their family members may qualify for college financial aid programs.

Members of the Guard also are eligible for Montgomery GI Bill and GI Bill Kicker assistance.

  • Short school board meeting: Consent agenda approved

    Monday’s school board meeting went off without a hitch – all 10 minutes of it. Before the meeting was called to order, board members chuckled at the fact that the agenda had no items listed under the action agenda.
    “I thought my computer messed up,” said board member Ronnie Chelf with a laugh. However, there was no error and the meeting carried on.
