GLI Statement on JCPS Agreement

“GLI has been in contact with numerous stakeholders over the past several months as we advocated strongly for a negotiated solution that puts kids first, allows Dr. Pollio the freedom to do his job, and brings the necessary changes highlighted in the state audit. We applaud the JCPS School Board and Dr. Wayne Lewis for having the foresight and perseverance  to negotiate a mutually agreeable solution that avoids disruptive, expensive hearings and possible litigation.   Now let’s continue the critical work of improving student outcomes.”  -Kent Oyler, President & CEO of Greater Louisville Inc.
