JCPS promises to provide more details on finances in response to state audit

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- JCPS issued its response Monday night almost a month after a state audit found the district spends more money on administration - and less on instruction - than similarly sized school districts.

The JCPS board says the district is starting to do better.

Action steps include ensuring all teachers have proper resources in their classrooms.

JCPS currently spends 140 dollars per student for instructional supplies versus the minimum 100 dollars mandated by the state.

Officials at each school will conduct an inventory of textbooks and JCPS administrators promise to provide more details on finances and contracts to school board members.
