  3. What are the most common misconceptions about facilities and school safety?
  4. What are the questions board members should be asking? Should we be talking to KCSS, architects, facilities directors?
  5. What is the role board members should take in addressing school safety and facilities?
  6. What do you say to community members who call asking about school safety/facilities concerns?
  7. What are no or low-cost changes schools can make?
  8. What doesn’t work or isn’t cost-effective in changing school safety?

Amazing project for the future of the Russell County Students.Progress continues on the Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center! The building (under construction by Branscum Construction Company, Inc) is beginning to resemble the design rendering by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. The center is being constructed on the grounds of Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region. The center is expected to serve 2,215 high school students and 620 adults in all five primary Kentucky Workforce Investment Board sectors — advanced manufacturing, healthcare, technology, construction trades, and transportation.
