Public Schools The data in the tables that follow is compiled by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) and local public school districts. Here are definitions of the statistical categories included in the tables: Capacity: The maximum number of students a school is designed to serve, according to its academic programs. Enrollment: The average daily student attendance at a school. Spending/Student: The amount spent per student by the school district at each school. Student/Teacher Ratio: A school's enrollment divided by its number of teachers. % in Advance Program: The percentage of a school's students who participate in the Advance Program. Schools with no percentage given do not offer advance programs. Percent Proficient/Distinguished in Reading/Math (elementary and middle schools only): Percentage of students testing at or above the Proficient level in reading and math. Free/Reduced-Price Lunch %: The percentage of students who receive free or reduced-price school lunches, based on federal family-income guidelines. A higher number indicates that a school serves a greater percentage of low- income students. % Non-White: The percentage of a school's students whose ethnicity is defined as African-American, Asian- American, Hispanic, Native American or Other. Suspensions: The number of disciplinary suspensions issued during the school year at a particular school. Disciplinary suspensions are based on the JCPS Student Code of Conduct. ACT (high schools only): Kentucky high school students are required to take the ACT college-entrance exams. The ACT score listed for each school is the average composite score for all students at that school for the most recent graduating class. Other notes: A "–" in a data field means that the information is not available or was not provided. Due to changes in the KDE's data reporting methodology, not all school data was available at the time of printing. Additional school data will be available at the KDE's website later this year.
