KY Schools Making the Grade

Student performance, college and career-readiness and the number of students graduating from high school are all going-up according to new data from the Kentucky Department of Education.

State education leaders said schools are without a doubt making progress and call these higher numbers “good news.”

Each school and school district was also given a report card.

The top three schools in the state with the highest overall scores are:
Dupont Manual High School in Jefferson County
Murray Elementary School in Murray Independent
Star Elementary in Carter County

The schools with the three lowest overall scores are:
Myers Middle school in Jefferson County
W.B. Muncy Elementary School in Leslie County
William Wells Brown Elementary in Fayette County

The state classified Fayette County as needs improvement.

 Bourbon County is proficient. 

Scott, Clark and Jessamine Counties are all considered proficient and progressing.

 Woodford County is distinguished and progressing.

All six of those schools increased their overall scores compared to last year.

Our students matter, this is really about our students,” said Kathy Fields, superintendent of Jessamine County Schools.  “We know that the future is bright because we’re working everyday to ensure the students of Jessamine County schools have what they need to be successful.”
