Growth Districts

Two area schools are named "Growth Districts" by the Kentucky Department of Education.

Bill Walter, the assistant superintendent for Barren County Schools, says Barren County and Warren County are two of 19 school districts to be named as such.

This is the fifth consecutive year for Barren County. Warren County schools says it has been named a growth district for the past several years, as well.

The Trojans had 264 more students on the first day of school this year compared to last. Now, just a few weeks after the first day around a hundred more students have been added on to that list.

The principal of Barren County High, Keith Hale, says it's a good problem to have. "Some of our classrooms are full, but you'd be surprised to know some of them aren't too full", said Hale.

Hale says at his school the block scheduling and the size of the school helps keep their classes at around 25 to 35 students.
