LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

• The board approved a $300 KASA grant to offset expenses for Finance Director Amy Brown to attend the Finance Policy and Operations Institute in March.

• The board also approved a Family Resource and Youth Services Center grant for $61,000. The grant is awarded every two years and is wholly dependent on the school’s reduced lunch population.

• Kentucky State Senator Albert Robinson met with the board on Jan. 24 regarding their concerns for funding in education.

“He listened to our questions and concerns,” said Superintendent Vicki Jones. “We hope those messages will get back to Frankfort and we will see some changes.”
