  • Brigance screener leads to student success

    Kindergarten used to be the first in-school experience children would have.

    Now it is becoming the norm for children to prepare for school through pre-schools and other pre-K educational facilities.

    For the past several years, children have been evaluated by their teachers prior to entering kindergarten. A new system has been developed – the Brigance Kindergarten Screener.

    All school districts within the state of Kentucky are required by the state to screen incoming kindergarteners using BKS.

  • Principals share ‘TELL’ results

    During the Sept. 16 school board meeting, each of the LaRue County Schools’ principals presented their individual TELL Report results for this year.

    The TELL Survey (or Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning Survey), is offered to “all licensed school-based educators including teachers, administrators, media coordinators, counselors,” according to its website. The Kentucky Department of Education contracted with the New Teacher Center to administer the survey on a state level.

    The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test which serves as an initial screen of about 1.5 million entrants each year.
