JCPS to Host Virtual Student Assignment Summit

Online gathering to highlight plan to bring choice to students in west Louisville

A virtual student assignment summit will be held this week to further detail plans to give more access and options to students in west Louisville. The plan would give middle and high school students in west Louisville the opportunity to attend school closer to home or continue to attend school in another neighborhood. Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) will host the event on its YouTube channel at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10. This is the latest public event to provide information and collect feedback from families, staff and community members about proposed changes to the student assignment plan.

The district’s Student Assignment Advisory Committee held a series of meetings and discussions to look for ways to strengthen choice and access for all JCPS students.  The committee is made up of JCPS parents, staff, and other stakeholders who met for more than a year to develop guiding principles and recommendations to the Jefferson County Board of Education.

The online summit will first air online on our JCPS YouTube page and will be available to watch on demand.  Families and community members will also be able to share feedback about the proposed changes via a Google form available here

The district reviews the student assignment plan every five to seven years.   This is the latest measure in a series of public events to gain input from the community.

Follow JCPS online on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
