LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear said a new partnership with four large Louisville employers will connect graduates of Jefferson County Public Schools with job opportunities, postsecondary enrollment, or both.

The program, named “Everybody Counts,” will provide high school seniors at JCPS with materials on higher education options and job openings at Ford Motor Co., GE Appliances, Kroger and UPS by Feb. 1.  

JCPS is Kentucky’s largest school system with more than 96,000 students.
