School improvement is an overriding goal for all of Kentucky’s public schools, and this page provides information about resources to assist schools and districts in preparing all Kentucky students for next-generation learning, work and citizenship by engaging schools, districts, families and communities through excellent leadership, service and support.

The process of Improvement Planning in Kentucky is used as the means of determining how schools and districts will plan to ensure that all students are college and career ready.
 
Focus Schools

Management Audit Process
KRS 158.780 and 158.785 require that the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) establish a program for management improvement services for those school districts which demonstrate such a critical lack of efficiency or effectiveness in governance or administration that state-mandated corrective action or state control of the district is required.
