Frost Middle School in Jefferson County closing?
WAVE-3 reports that the Frost Middle School, one of the state’s 10 Persistently low-achieving schools, has been recommended for closure.
But, wait, the school district is going to move the Phoenix School of Discovery into the same location. That’s not a charter school (we don’t have any), so it is still part of the Jefferson County Public School System, subject to all the union rules, etc.
Could that mean teachers with seniority from Frost might wind up right back in the same building?
Could that mean a school by any other name is still “Frost?”
Right now, the Kentucky Department of Education says the Phoenix School of Discovery is located at 10200 Dixie Highway in Louisville. What, if anything, will be going into that facility? Frost II, former staff included?
Also, Frost is located at 13700 Sandray Boulevard in Valley Station. Mapquest says that’s about 4.7 miles away from Phoenix’s current location, as the bus drives. Of course, in school bus happy Louisville, that is no issue.
This sure is getting interesting.
