  • Win-Win Situation

    LaRue County Schools have found a “win-win” situation in the 18 high school students involved in the Student Help Desk.

    Not only are they doing a service to the school through computer and other technology repair and maintenance, they are also gaining valuable skills and knowledge that will help them later in life.

     “I do not think the tech staff could even begin to keep up with the district’s needs if we did not have the student Help Desk,” acknowledged Freddie Newby, the district’s chief information officer.
