For LaRue County Schools
In the 2002-03 school year, at LaRue County High School, only 3 percent of students with disabilities scored at the two highest levels — proficient and distinguished — on Kentucky’s statewide academic assessment in math. In reading, the percentage was only slightly higher, 7 percent.
Results from the 2010-11 tests, however, showed significant increases in each area thanks in large part to a change in delivery of instruction to co-teaching.
