State: Fairdale High making progress toward exiting priority school status

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fairdale High School is hitting the benchmarks it needs to hit to get rid of its label as a priority school according to a recent report. 

The Kentucky Department of Education Two-Day Progress Monitoring Review considered several reports and data, in-school observations and interviews to give the priority school feedback on improving student performance over the preceding two years. 

The report also outlined strategies to raise student achievement and improve conditions that support student learning.

Fairdale received high marks for its curriculum, instructional design and assessment practices, rating it a 3 on a scale of 4 in 11 of 12 separate categories.

The report cited one area that needs improvement: teachers engaging students in learning. Dr. Marco Munoz, director of Priority Schools, said that’s an area that continues to challenge schools across the country. 

The report also indicated the school had satisfactorily addressed an improvement priority identified in the 2014-15 Internal School Review for Fairdale, related to developing and documenting common grading and reporting policies.

Schools in priority status are reviewed every two years by the Kentucky Department of Education.
