The majority of children in Kentucky's public schools perform above federal guidelines.
A report from the Kentucky Department of Education says 75-percent of public schools met the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
Nearly 25-percent of Kentucky's public schools didn't make "adequate yearly progress" in reading and math over the past year as required under federal law.
Spokeswoman Lisa Gross of the Department of Education says the department has concern with schools that don't seem to be making a lot of improvement.
She added that the resource base will be improved for those schools.
Six schools face the most severe consequences possible under the federal law.
Four of the schools are in Jefferson County.
