The U.S. Department of Education will require states to administer a statewide assessment for the 2020-2021 school year, the agency announced on Feb. 22.
The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) adopted a final order on Oct. 7 that settles a long-running dispute between the Pineville Independent and Bell County school districts.
On Tuesday, Oct. 1, educators, parents, students and education stakeholders will see for the first time how their local schools are performing under Kentucky’s new 5-star accountability system.
Local school boards and districts will see changes as a result of legislation passed during the Kentucky General Assembly’s 2019 Regular Session, which came to a close on March 28. The most notable changes includes those in Senate Bill 1, Senate Bill 8, Senate Bill 175 and House Bill 11.
The Kentucky Department of Education released 2017-2018 student assessment results, and also identified the state’s lowest performing schools as well as those struggling to meet the needs of specific groups of students.
