The vision of Laurel County Schools is that all students receive a gold-standard education that prepares them to become successful and responsible life-long learners. Our vision has not changed, and our commitment to Laurel County students did not waiver during the recent challenges of forced school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, Laurel County students and staff persevered, and the recent release of the 2020-21 state-required assessment scores reflects what diligence and perseverance can do.
In the Spring of 2021, a state test, known as the Kentucky Summative Assessment (KSA), was administered to all in-person students. Since the K-PREP assessments were not administered in the spring of 2020 due to the pandemic, there are no data to compare, nor is it possible to compare overall scores to all schools and districts across the state due to the newly enacted federal suppression rules.
