District Information

The Lawrence County School System is under a Federal Court Order regarding the seven school districts in our County.  The court order requires all students attend school in the district where their parent or legal guardian reside.

The Lawrence County School System serves our 5300 students in twelve schools. We recently restructured schools, giving our system: three high schools, two middle schools, and six elementary schools, as well as our newly established virtual school.  Each school year, we strive to  increase in size, renovate, and work to provide more modern facilities for our students.

In addition to our core schools, we have an educational setting for all students regardless of interest or necessity.  The Lawrence County Center of Technology provides multiple technical education fields for our students.  The Judy Jester Learning Center provides an alternative setting for students to receive an education in a nontraditional manner.  In addition to the Judy Jester Learning Center, we provide education in an isolated setting for those who have proven to be disciplinary problems in the traditional educational setting through our Center of Opportunity or COPS program.  This has proven to serve as an effective deterrent for violence and other disciplinary issues.  The program at the Oakville Indian Museum and Educational Center, which spans 140 acres, provides an excellent supplemental education to the large Native American population of Lawrence County.  This facility also provides excellent opportunities for the Lawrence County Board of Education to host sporting events and an annual multi-cultural festival.  Our Federal Programs department also maintains Migrant Education and Homeless Education programs as well as Title I, Title II, At-Risk, Neglected and Delinquent Education, and Drug Awareness programs.  Our system also offers Pre-K programs in three communities. These have proven to improve academic success for those involved throughout the state.  A special education Pre-K program is provided for children three years or older with special needs.
