Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio, Dave Myers, Fairdale High School heavy equipment science instructor, Fairdale High School students, business partners and former students will celebrate Fairdale High School’s launch as an Academies of Louisville school beginning in the 2018/19 school year, focusing on preparing students for careers in law enforcement, fire science and heavy equipment.  Fairdale will be the 12th – and newest – academies school within JCPS.

Following brief remarks, students will demonstrate exercises in all three program areas to highlight the real-world experiences they’re gaining in an academies-model curriculum, including a high-speed chase in a driving simulator; forcible door entry simulation; and heavy equipment operation.

In addition, FHS graduates who are now working in related careers will be available for interviews.
