LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There is great news for all three high schools in Hardin County. Each one earned top honors when test results were released this week.
Those scores that reached the title of "distinguished" helped the district keep a proficient rating.
While the school system met the state's overall expectations, leaders say writing needs work. Only 26 percent of Hardin County elementary school students tested on grade level in that subject.
"Our goal is to focus on those individual schools and their individual needs, so our instructional services department can get in there and assist in the areas we have concerns about and then celebrate the areas that we showed growth in," said Hardin County Schools Superintendent Teresa Morgan.
Hardin County's overall score was 67.5, up about a half point from last year.
