JCTA President Says Shakeups At High Schools Is The Wrong Tactic

The head of the teachers union in Louisville says replacing the principals and teachers at three underperforming schools will not solve the schools’ problems.

This week, state auditors declared that the principals at Iroquois, Waggener and Southern high schools must be replaced. Teachers at the schools could also be moved.

Three JCPS Schools Must Replace Principals, Says Audit

The changes come as the result of state leadership audit reports. The auditors determined that the principals were no longer capable of continuing their responsibilities. Additionally, they recommend that the school councils at Iroquois and Southern should be disbanded, while the council at Waggener may continue to serve an advisory role.
