Lawyer files court motion to obtain Jeff Co school enrollment data

A Louisville lawyer filed a motion yesterday in federal court seeking to compel Jefferson County Public Schools to provide data on enrollment and the capacities of a handful of schools.

Attorney Teddy Gordon said that some parents whose children were denied transfers are trying to make sure that they weren't turned down because of race.

Gordon recently won a case before the U.S. Supreme Court that forced the district to drop its racial integration plan.

The motion seeks grade-level capacity figures at seven schools, including Middletown and Hite elementary schools and Pleasure Ridge Park High.

District data provided to The Courier-Journal shows all but one, Farmer Elementary, were full or overenrolled as of Tuesday. The figures were not broken down by grade...

This from the Courier-Journal.
