Jefferson County School Desegregation Unfinished. Pupil Desegregation Increases But Teacher Gaps Remain. Report for 1978-79 and 1979-80. Staff Report 80-2.
Statistical data on student and faculty desegregation supplied by the Jefferson County (Kentucky) Board of Education for the 1978-79 and 1979-80 school years were analyzed. The number of schools not in compliance with school desegregation guidelines was reduced between 1978-79 and 1979-80. The inclusion of first graders in the desegregation plan brought all but twelve schools within the desegregation guidelines for pupil enrollment. Attendance zone adjustments were prepared for the 1980-81 school year to further increase student desegregation. Desegregation criteria for teacher assignments were not met in most high schools and vocational schools, but most elementary and middle schools met, or were close to meeting, faculty desegregation criteria. Every high school and 16 of the 22 middle schools had biracial administrative staffs in 1979-80. (MK)
