  • School board to redraw member lines

    Fresh off redrawing school attendance boundaries, the members of the Oldham County Board of Education are redrawing their lines too.

    The biggest adjustment will come from a policy change that states prison populations will no longer be counted, like they were in the previous redrawing of member lines. The board has not yet taken action on the new map, but brought it up for discussion at its December meeting.
