Kentucky School District Designation Allows For Non-Traditional Learning

CADIZ, Ky. (AP) -- Some high school students in western Kentucky are learning in new ways after the state Department of Education named Trigg County a district of innovation.

The designation exempts a district from certain regulations and allows it to redesign how students are educated.

In Trigg County, that means students can test out of traditional language arts or math classes and instead take courses that focus on group problem-solving skills and incorporate technology.

Trigg County Superintendent Travis Hamby told the Kentucky New Era that ninth-graders are piloting the initiative. He said plans call for expanding it to the sophomore class next year.

Trigg County is one of seven school district across the state approved for the innovation designation.
