LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Tonight JCPS comes one step closer to the big idea behind a new way of teaching.

The Board of Education expects to name finalists in the School of Innovation competition.

The state has given a handful of school districts special exemption from certain rules and regulations to re-think what education should look like.

It's Kentucky's answer to the charter school.

Twelve semi-finalists presented their ideas last week. One idea creates a magnet school on Museum Row. Another uses art to teach all subjects.

The finalist will be made public at the JCPS board meeting tonight at 7.
