LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A partnership to improve education is continuing between Louisville's mayor and Jefferson County Public Schools.
On Friday, Nov. 15, Greg Fischer and JCPS Superintendent Donna Hargens will be honoring the Louisville Zoo for its education program.
This comes one day after Fischer and Hargens announced that they've formalized what they call a joint commitment to improve education.
The goal is to drive the success of students who will soon enter the global workforce.
“I feel like the mayor’s office is the conscience for the community as it relates to education and making sure each of our kids has a chance as it relates to education here as good as any in the world,” Fischer said.
JCPS and Metro Government also plan to collaborate on things like developing grants and expanding "learning places" throughout the city.
