Berman Touts JCPS Accomplishments In Rotary Speech

Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Sheldon Berman updated the Rotary Club of Louisville Thursday on the state of the school district.

Berman talked curriculum retructuring, the court-ordered revamping of the JCPS student assignment plan, and the “Care for Kids” initiative that teaches young people social responsibilities.

He also said he’d like to extend his stay in Louisville.

“I can’t help but say I’d love to have my contract renewed and that will be up next year, so we’ll see where that goes. I have a sense of confidence that the board respects the work that we’re doing and respects the work that I’ve done. I’ve gotten a good deal of support from them,” he said.

Berman came to Louisville in mid-2007 from Massachusetts.
