Jefferson County Public Schools has narrowed the search for the district’s next superintendent down to two candidates, and parents have some thoughts on what that next leader should do.

The Jefferson County Board of Education has been presented a new student assignment plan after months of anticipation, but the board has delayed any decisions about implementing the plan until next month.

The new plan was proposed to the board at Monday night’s board meeting. The proposal maintains the current six clusters and boundaries the district uses to measure diversity, but includes new diversity criteria recommended by UCLA professor Gary Orfield, who provided the district with ideas in September.
