LaRue County Schools received a portion of nearly $1.2 million set aside by the state for 58 Community Early Childhood Councils.
LaRue County’s share was $7,000.
“These grants will help communities give our children the best possible start in school and in life,” said Governor Steve Beshear. “Every child in the Commonwealth, from the most rural farm to the inner city, deserves the opportunity for a promising life. Local councils are most qualified to serve the needs of the children in their communities.”
