Spring Assessment Data Released

Spring assessment data is being released this week by the Kentucky Department of Education. This year’s assessment data is being reported differently, as the state is transitioning away from the Unbridled Learning Accountability Model and moving to the new accountability system – the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Kentucky Senate Bill 1. This year, schools did not receive an overall score, classification, or ranking. While our schools will not be classified as novice, apprentice, proficient, and distinguished, we have received impressive results in our gap, growth, college- and career-readiness, and graduation rate data. The new accountability system is expected to be in place for the 2018-2019 school year with accountability first reported in the 2019-2020 school year.
