The Kentucky Department of Education released the most recent list of ‘Persistently Low Achieving Schools‘ (PLAs) last week. As part of our 2011 Open Record Project, requests were submitted to obtain the most recent performance evaluations for the superintendent of each district that had a school on the list.
This is a follow up to “Rewarding Failure” which looked at how superintendents of underperforming districts were rewarded with glowing reviews and in many cases with substantial pay increases.
You can track the records requests for these PLA schools/districts here. Information will be updated as it is available.
