Dual Credit/Work Ready Scholarship

KHEAA has loaded the data file recently submitted by your high school(s) for dual credit scholarship programs.  Students who have scholarship eligibility remaining for the 2018-2019 year should see a link on their MyKHEAA accounts to set scholarship preferences for the spring 2019 semester.  The deadline for students to submit preferences is March 1, 2019.  No additional scholarship requests will be accepted or changes made after March 1.

Students in grades 11 and 12 who have Dual Credit Scholarship eligibility remaining should see a DCS set preference link on their MyKHEAA account.  Students in grades 9-12 who were flagged as taking Career and Technical Education coursework should see a Work Ready KY Scholarship set preference link.  Some students may see links for both programs.  DCS preferences should be submitted first; then WRKS if the student has additional CTE coursework above and beyond what DCS will cover. 

If students submitted preferences for the spring semester back in the fall, they do not need to do anything further.  Existing scholarship awards will remain as is on KHEAA’s system.

2018-19 Barren County Non-Traditional Instruction Days - iLearn@home iLearn@home logo

We are pleased to announce that Barren County is approved for 2018-19 school year to continue the Non-Traditional Instruction Plan known as iLearn@home.  The Barren County School District will join over 83 other school districts to look at instruction on snow days (or other days school would not be in session) differently.

The Barren County School District will be utilizing FIVE weather related closing days as iLearn@home days but, at the discretion of the superintendent and district leadership, there will not be more than 3 days the same week.  Schools are preparing now for Dec 1st - as this is the date that all schools will be ready to implement should weather require us to use these days.  Be looking for information from our schools for students and parents so they will know what to expect if weather dictates a closing in the coming weeks.  Read more about it the state approved waiver here.
