School Closing/Delay Procedures for Inclement Weather school closing decisions

It’s the season for unpredictable weather.  The Superintendent and the Transportation Director take very seriously the safe transportation of our students and staff. Please familiarize yourself with the school closing/delay procedures.

 

2019-2020 Barren County Non-Traditional Instruction Days - iLearn@home iLearn@home logo

The Barren County School District will once again participate in the the Non-Traditional Instruction Plan known as iLearn@home for the 2019-20 school year.  As a district, we join over 83 other school districts to address 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 2nd - 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.
