Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Marty Pollio named Christy Rogers the district's new assistant superintendent of high schools on Monday.
Rogers, who has been the district's assistant superintendent of transition readiness since June 2018, replaces Dr. Glenn Baete, who retired from the district in June. She has been with the district since June 2016.
"For the past three years, Christy has been building sustainable partnerships between JCPS and many business and community partners to ensure that all students are prepared for success in college, career and life," Pollio said. "I am thrilled that within this role, that work will continue as we set a course to make certain every graduate is prepared with industry-recognized credentials, college credit, work experience and a seamless postsecondary plan."
Rogers, who has served for nearly three decades in public education, worked as a business educator, principal and college and career director for Bullitt County Public Schools prior to JCPS.
"I was a district director and high school principal for many years," Rogers said. "I feel my greatest, toughest and most rewarding work was as a high school principal. I am looking forward to working with all of our principals to support their vision and help move our schools from implementation to impact."
Rogers helped launch the Academies of Louisville, an initiative in JCPS that is equipping students with the skills and expertise to meet the needs of a 21st Century workforce in the fall of 2017. That work has already impacted more than 17,000 students and resulted in nearly 115 signed business partners.
"I am excited about the merging of career and technical education and all high schools under one division, because they are all related and we want to improve the outcomes of all of our students," she said.
Rogers received a bachelor's degree from Campbellsville University, her master's degree from Western Kentucky University and her Rank 1 in instructional leadership from the University of Louisville.
