  • Educational ICU emphasizes accountability

    Thanks to grants from the Kentucky Department of Education and Ohio Valley United Charities, the Carroll County School District has a new educational Intensive Care Unit that is having a big impact on student learning. Assignments are being turned in on time, and parents are being given minute-by-minute updates on students’ work completion.

    ICU is in its first year at Carroll County Middle School and Carroll County High School, where coordinator Lee Downey is leading the project.
