Lexington, KY – In response to the BUILD organization calls, two new bus routes, managed by the local transit authority, opened in 2007 to provide access to higher-paying, dense employment areas of the city.
Lexington, KY – Due to the BUILD organization’s efforts, Bryan Station High School implemented Individualized Graduation Plans (IGPs) in 2005. An IGP is a plan of study that emphasizes academic and career development for students in high school and sets learning goals based on academic and career interests. Not only did Bryan Station implement the plans, but they did it faster than originally committed. BUILD also ensured the hire of a Highly Skilled Educator (HSE) for the 2005-2006 academic year at Winburn Middle School. An HSE acts as a coach for teachers, helping them learn better teaching methods.
