I am writing today because you are critical partners to our educational system. Your voice matters and everything we do in education is a direct response to the teaching and learning that we know is extraordinarily important to the growth of your children.
A Statement from Interim Education Commissioner Kevin C. Brown

A statement from Interim Education Commissioner Kevin C. Brown

Our country and our Commonwealth are hurting. So many of us have been shaken over the senseless deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Louisville’s Breonna Taylor. We are seeing an outcry of grief and anger with many of our students, families and educators gathering to speak out about racial injustice.

Help keep your child learning all summer long

While summer is a time for kids to have fun, sleep in and play outside, it’s often a time educators worry about due to the “summer slide”. Also, when we consider the reopening of schools, the effects of summer slide pose greater challenges than ever before.

As this school year draws to a close, I’d like to thank you on behalf of KDE staff and the education profession for your assistance in ensuring Kentucky students continued to learn during the extraordinary circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With all that has happened in the closing weeks of this school year, you may not want to think about what the next school year will look like for your children just yet.
