LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Central High School was just one of the topics of conversation Sunday evening at the Yearlings Club.
Lots of people gathered to hear JCPS Superintendent Donna Hargens give a JCPS progress report. According to her, things are right on pace and Dr. Hargens doesn't just want a passing grade for the district, she wants excellence.
Students haven't been in school for a month yet, but Dr. Hargens told guests that the first day was a huge success for the district.
This is Dr. Hargens third year as superintendent and she shared her strategic plan: Vision 2015. She said the first year was spent creating the strategic plan, last year was all about putting the structures in place and this year, the goal is action. The intent is to become the best urban school district in the nation.
The superintendent says it starts on a personal level -- connecting with each and every one of the 102,000 students here in Jefferson County.
Dr. Hargens spoke briefly about various initiatives, the district's partnership with UofL and also answered questions from guests. She said she is as excited now about the future as she was the day she started.
