The United States Department of Education awarded the Kentucky Department of Education a 3-year, $24.9 million grant to support the development of pre-literacy skills, reading and writing among Kentucky’s children.
With implementation of the Kentucky Academic Standards in 2009, grade-level reading bands shifted to reflect the higher expectations needed to prepare students for college and careers. Along came new conversations and resources, defining text complexity.
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) publishes Kentucky Teacher to communicate directly with the state’s 40,000 public school teachers. The stories of this award-winning publication include news, perspectives, and practical, workable ideas for guiding students to higher levels of achievement.
