LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Strategy, structure and action are all part of JCPS's progress under superintendent Donna Hargens.
Sunday afternoon, Hargens delivered a progress report on herself at the Yearlings Club in the Shawnee neighborhood.
Hargens says during her first year in 2011 she developed a strategy, which she called Vision 2015.
It focused on increasing student learning and benefits beyond graduation.
She says her focus last year was on structure, cutting her cabinet down to six members and saving $4.1 million.
Hargens says this year was the one she had been anticipating: "I've been looking forward to this moment because this is about implementation and action. This is about taking what we know will work and implementing it, and making sure the whole system is growing together toward making this the best urban district in the country."
JCPS is the largest school district in Kentucky with more than 100,000 students.
