East KY has 1 of 10 lowest performing schools

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Jefferson County has six of the 10 lowest
performing schools in Kentucky, according to a published report.

The other four are spread out across the state.

The Courier-Journal reported Monday that the six high schools in
Jefferson County will be subject to state audits and possible
restructuring. They include Southern, Fairdale, Waggener, Iroquois,
Seneca and Doss.

The other schools are East Carter County High School, Christian
County High School, Greenup County High School and Sheldon Clark
High in Martin County.

The schools were selected because of their low proficiency rates
in reading and math on statewide tests last spring.

Jefferson County also had six of the state's lowest performing
schools last year, all of which got major overhauls over the
summer.
