LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jefferson County Public Schools announced Tuesday that additional public meetings have been scheduled to provide input regarding the district’s salary study and development of a behavior management system.

“We heard from our employees who were very interested in attending some of the events and needed opportunities after work hours,” said Superintendent Donna Hargens in a statement on Tuesday. “These are important topics, and I want to make sure that everyone has an opportunity to attend.”

As reported by WDRB on Monday, JCPS teacher and employee unions questioned timing of the upcoming meetings.

Hargens will host two Superintendent’s Summits regarding development of a behavior management system for JCPS. 

  • The first meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 23 from 8 to 11 a.m. in Flex Room A of Gheens Academy, 4425 Preston Hwy. 
  • The second summit will be held Wednesday, May 25 from 5 to 8 p.m. in Stewart Auditorium at the Vanhoose Education Center, 3332 Newburg Road.

Participants in for the Superintendent’s Summit are receiving invitations, but the meetings are open to the public.

There will also be two opportunities for people to attend briefings from the Management Advisory Group (MAG), the independent consultant that conducted the salary study regarding the district’s compensation and pay structure. 

  • The first meeting will be held Monday, May 23 from 3 to 5:30 p.m. in Stewart Auditorium at the Van Hoose Education Center
  • The second meeting will be held Monday, May 23 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Stewart Auditorium at the Van Hoose Education Center
