The Gap Delivery targets provide schools and districts with the annual progress needed to meet their 2017 Achievement Gap goals. The overall Gap targets and goals are created based on the Gap to Goal report.
The following goal has been set for the closing the achievement gap delivery plan.
Increase the average combined reading and math proficiency ratings for all students in the non-duplicated gap group (African-American, Hispanic, Native American, With Disability, Free/Reduced-Price Meals, Limited English Proficiency) from 33.0% in 2012 to 66.5% in 2017.
The 2012 Non-Duplicated Gap Group Proficiency Rate Map displays the percentage of all students in the non-duplicated gap group scoring at or above proficiency in reading/math combined. Districts that are shaded were identified as focus districts. Districts in green scored within the top two quintiles of districts. Districts in yellow, orange and red scored in the bottom 3 quintiles of all districts.
The Kentucky Department of Education has identified the following strategies to help districts and schools reach their annual delivery targets. Additional information on these strategies can be found with the Gap Delivery Plan and on the Strategies for Closing Gaps homepage.
