Barren County Approved For Non-Traditional Instruction Days

We are pleased to announce that Barren County is approved for 2016-2017 school year to continue the Non-Traditional Instruction Plan known as "iLearn@home".  The Barren County School District was selected last year as one of thirty-one new districts to participate in this waiver program, and for 2016-2017 will join 71 other school districts to look at instruction on snow days (or other days school would not be in session) differently.

Barren County "iLearning@Home" Days are being planned to reduce impact of missed days due to weather or other events.  Read more about it the state approved waiver here.
