GLI President and CEO Remarks on JCPS School Ratings

“GLI supports the transformative work happening in Jefferson County Public Schools and is encouraged to see positive trends in key growth areas such as student graduation and transition readiness. The new state ratings system gives our community greater transparency on the performance of a school and provides clearer data about student outcomes. We acknowledge that schools are more than just a label, and that schools represent the collective work of educators and the community to prepare students for career and life. GLI remains committed to increasing business engagement in JCPS through Academies of Louisville and other initiatives.”

— Kent Oyler, President and CEO of GLI
