Changes recommended for JCPS magnet programs

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A consultant has recommended making changes to the popular magnet programs offered at Jefferson County Public Schools.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1mLVv9m) reports the national consultant says the district should consolidate or phase out nine programs and put more than a dozen others on probation.

Bob Rodosky, who is executive director of data management, planning and program evaluation, says district officials will proceed carefully.

They plan to spend the next six months evaluating the recommendations before deciding what actions to take.

The consultant reviewed 59 of the district's roughly 150 magnet and optional programs and magnet schools.
