Superintendent provides accountability overview; recognizes top 25% schools

Superintendent Jeremy Ledford presented the results of the Kentucky Summative Assessment (state accountability) to the Board following the release of the school report card earlier this month.

“You hear me say all the time that our vision is to be a Top Performing District in the state. The only way that is possible is with community support, staff, teachers who care about kids, strong administrators to lead the school, and a board who puts kids first,” said Ledford.

“I can truly say that we have all of that and more in Knox County Public Schools. We are truly blessed.”

Principals and board members are shown with plaques for placing in the top 25% in the state on accountability.

“Therefore, we want to recognize the Schools and Administrators of our district that finished in the Top 25% in the state. We had 6 schools out of 10 schools that accomplished this task. To say I am proud of them and their staff is an understatement, as it cannot be done alone. It truly takes everyone.”
