  • LCS fares well on ACT scores

    According to last week’s press release from the Kentucky Department of Education, the state’s public high school graduates held steady in meeting college-readiness benchmarks on the ACT college-entrance exam in reading and English, but lost ground in meeting the state mathematics benchmark.

    “This is a report on the graduating class of 2016,” explained Amanda Reed, LaRue County Schools’ assistant superintendent. Reed said that all juniors take the ACT in March, but the latest results are not that data which was released in July.

  • 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.
