11/02/2007 - LOUISA — Lawrence County Board of Education member Laura Parker has achieved level five certification in the Kentucky School Boards Association (KSBA) Academy of Studies.

The Academy of Studies training covers areas such as using student achievement data to set district goals and plan budgets, compliance with new state and federal education laws, school construction, strategic planning, policy development and effective community involvement.

"State law sets down a minimum number of hours, between four and 12, that school board members must attain each year but this certification means much more," said KSBA President Ed Massey, a member of the Boone County Board of Education. "These individuals have chosen to devote additional nights and weekends to learning more, experiencing more and in turn being able to contribute more to the decisions that affect the quality of education their students receive," he said.

Parker was elected to the Lawrence County Board in 1999 and has served for the past eight years. She currently serves as chairman of the board of education.
