  • LaRue juniors pass state ACT average once again

    LaRue County High School juniors made a “three-peat” last spring when, for the third straight year, the school surpassed the state average on the ACT.

     

    “Credit goes to our staff who have intentionally put strategies in place to expose our students to ACT type questions and to our students and parents who value the importance of the ACT and its role in postsecondary education,” said Paul Mullins, LCHS principal.

  • LaRue schools gearing up for an exciting new year

    LaRue County Schools welcome new students and staff to another exciting school year. As students return tomorrow, the schools have important reminders and information to share:

  • LaRue adopts new policy for missing and tardy students

    Schools want their students to attend all classes and be on time for several reasons. 

    Obviously, a student who is not in class will miss the instruction. But school districts also receive funding based on average daily attendance, and the more students who are on time and attend all classes, the more money the schools will receive to help those students achieve.

  • Personnel changes

    Employment of:

    • Bob Bright as principal at LaRue County Middle School effective June 21.

    • Heather Ratliff as language arts teacher at LaRue County High School effective July 1.
