JCPS Officials to Update State Board of Education on Underperforming Schools

The Kentucky Board of Education holds is regular meeting this week in Frankfort.

Spokesperson Lisa Gross says the agenda includes a review of end-of-course exams for high school students and funding for the state’s preschool programs.

“They’re also going to hear reports from the Christian County and Jefferson County school districts. Those two districts have some chronically low-performing schools. So the board is interested to hear the kinds of things those districts are doing to improve student achievement,” said Gross.

Gross says both districts have received assistance from the department to help improve those schools. She says the board could decide to bolster those efforts if necessary. The Board meets Wednesday and Thursday.
