Posted at 9:44 PM, Jun 20, 2019

LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– The Lincoln County School Board voted to pass an appeal by middle school parents after a proposed shift to Summit Learning.

Summit Learning is pitched as a digital, personalized approach to teaching and learning, using more technology in the classroom. Superintendent Michael Rowe said that he, the board, and the student support center, all support the shift to the new curriculum.

Some parents filed an appeal and Thursday, the board voted to pass that appeal.

The board felt that the council did not follow proper protocol when implementing the program when they first voted Summit Leaning in. The board voted to send the vote back to the council.
