Get a soil test now, do nothing until results are back! Bare ground stage is the best and quickest time to correct any soil chemistry problems
D FLEX advice is on the mark!

dense turf in shade is a problem, especially by aug.

water 2-4 times per day for a total of .1" of water. soil must stay moist, but not too wet you can't walk on

use penn mulch or similiar product

@ 50% creeping red fescue, 5% bluegrass and remainder hard and chewing fescue

don't believe you will find sod that will survive in shade
