  • Celebrating LaRue County Education Week

    In a world that has become increasingly divisive and negative, it’s nice to be able to celebrate something positive and that is truly a group effort. Over the past several years, the staff and students in the LaRue County Public School system have made it our priority to work more efficiently and effectively to meet the increased demands of state and federal guidelines, as well as make it our own personal goal to ensure that our students get the best education possible so that they are equipped to do whatever they want or need to do in society.
