    Though Mike Brown, LaRue County director of pupil personnel and safe schools coordinator, can’t foretell when the next emergency will arise in any of the district’s four schools, nor what type it will be, he is doing his best to see that all sites are thoroughly prepared to meet it head-on.

    Part of this preparation is a well-thought-out emergency response plan made with the cooperation of local first responders and law enforcement officials.

    Senate Bill 1, sponsored by Dan Kelly of Springfield, does away with CATS and mandates the Department of Education create a replacement assessment by the 2011-12 school year.
