Struggling schools in Jefferson County (Ky.) district could face state takeover

Several persistently low-achieving public schools in the Jefferson County (Ky.) district could be facing a state takeover as early as this fall unless they show improvement soon. The Louisville Courier-Journal says that Education Commissioner Terry Holliday has put the district on notice that he is ready to order more audits for most of the district’s 18 low-performing schools if their graduation rates and college and career readiness statistics don’t improve this spring. Those audits would be used to determine if the state needs to assume oversight of the schools.
