LINCOLN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Like many Kentucky school systems, Lincoln County students are learning virtually. For some students that means not learning much at all.

"It's just not the same as being in the classroom with the teacher," said Lincoln County High School Principal Michael Godbey.

Recently, Lincoln County school board members approved in-person group instruction for students failing their online classes this semester.

For example, 50 of the high school's 1050 students can now go to the school on different days for small in-person learning. The number of students and staff must not exceed 15% of the building's capacity.

Targeted intervention is based on current student needs and targets seniors first then works down the grades based on greatest need.

"Sometimes it's kids who just need to come in for some internet access to get work downloaded and so forth. Other times it's a small group like I said, other times it's one on one," said Principal Michael Godbey.

He says students with the greatest need can continue the extra instruction as long as Lincoln County stays out of the COVID-19 red zone.

The district is only offering this to students who aren't meeting standards in three or more classes at this time. If you haven't been contacted and would like to use this opportunity, please call the school.
