LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Four of Jefferson County's lowest performing schools will find out today the results of leadership assessments conducted by the Kentucky Department of Education earlier this year.

The reviews at Doss, Iroquois and Seneca high schools and Knight Middle School will determine whether more intervention is needed at the schools.

Over the past five years, a total of 18 schools in Jefferson County have been identified as priority schools for having chronically low test scores. The state leadership assessments gauge school effectiveness, reviewing academic performance, learning environment and efficiency within each school.

In the past, some reviews have called for principals to be replaced.

District officials and school leaders will get the reports Thursday afternoon.
