JCPS principals do well in state assessment

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – It was an encouraging report card for those leading some of our schools. The Kentucky Department of Education said principals in several JCPS priority schools are on the right track.

KDE evaluated seven principals in seven priority schools that were deemed persistently low-achieving during the  state's leadership assessment. State personnel found those administrators are making the right changes to increase test scores.

Looking at the schools in question, principals at Doss, Fairdale, Iroquois, Seneca, Southern and Waggener high schools, and Knight Middle School all received high marks.

In all, 18 JCPS priority schools identified by the state are considered as needing improvement.
