Each year, Kentucky schools publish School Report Cards (SRC) and post them on the Kentucky Department of Education Website. Not to be confused with student report cards, School and District Report Cards provide information about each school and district, including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, awards, parent involvement, and much more. The school and district report cards were established by statute, KRS 158.6453 (20), and regulation, 703 KAR 5:140. Additionally, the report card must incorporate the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind ACT (NCLB).
School Report Cards help open the lines of communication between the school, the homes of its students, and its local community. They provide an opportunity for schools to highlight their strengths and explain what they are doing to improve. Parents can use School Report Cards when they visit their child's school for conferences and other meetings. Please explore the links below to view or download the current school and district report cards or to understand more about Kentucky's School Report Card Project.
While the KDE Website is the most convenient and inexpensive way for the vast majority of Kentucky parents to receive this information, schools and districts are required upon request to print cards for parents lacking Internet access .
Note: The school report card data files for 2000 through 2011 will be found in the Office of Assessment and Accountability FTP folder at: ftp://ketsftp.k12.ky.us/OAA
Kentucky’s new School Report Card (SRC) will be used to report data in fall 2012 for Kentucky’s new assessment and accountability system, Unbridled Learning: College/Career-Ready for All.
