Sarah J. Price was born in Clintonville in Bourbon County, Kentucky, on March 8, 1906. She attended schools in Paris, Kentucky, the county seat of Bourbon County. After high school, she studied at what is now Kentucky State University for two years, then began her teaching career in Bourbon County. In 1928 she moved to the schools in Harlan, Kentucky. In her first year there, Mrs. Price taught all eight grades in one school. In 1930 she left Harlan to teach in Fayette County.
She became a teacher at Newburg School in 1947 and taught until she was named the school’s principal in 1959. Mrs. Price continued her education at the University of Louisville, receiving her bachelor’s degree in 1951. She earned a master’s degree from Indiana University in 1953.
Sarah J. Price was the principal at Newburg School for nine years until her death in 1968, the year before Price Elementary School opened. Price Elementary opened in 1969 in the former county district, also named the Jefferson County Public Schools. That district decided to honor the late Mrs. Price by naming our then-new school for her.
Regular attendance is very important for the success of a student. Students are allowed inside the building after 8:30 a.m. and classes start promptly at 9:05 a.m Students arriving after 9:05 a.m. have to be checked in by an adult at the front office. We encourage students to attend school even if they are tardy.
PTA is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the school. When parents are involved in their children's education at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better. See the latest from our award winning National School of Excellence Price PTA
Every student, parent/guardian, and school staff member receives a copy of the code and receives instructions on how to use it. Staff members may use reasonable judgment on how to apply the code, but the code will be enforced fairly and equitably without discrimination. Students are responsible for following the code from the time they leave home for school until they return home after school, whenever they are on school property or on the school bus, or at any school-sponsored event.

The process of Improvement Planning in Kentucky is used as the means of determining how schools and districts will plan to ensure that all students are college- and career-ready. The process focuses school and district improvement efforts on student needs by bringing together all stakeholders to plan for improvement, by focusing planning efforts on priority needs and closing achievement gaps between subgroups of students, by building upon school and district capacity for high-quality planning, and by making connections between the funds that flow into the district and the priority needs in schools.

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." – Carl Jung
