Kentucky Academic Standards​
Administrative regulation 704 KAR 3:303 Required Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) was adopted into law as of June 2013. Curriculum translates these standards and considers all the steps (curriculum mapping, unit development, materials and resources, unit assessments, etc.) it will take to meet these standards. The Continuous Instructional Improvement Technology System (CIITS) provides electronic access to the Kentucky Academic Standards and a lesson planning tool and scheduler to help teachers manage standards-based instruction in the classroom. CIITS directly links and aligns high quality, multi-media instructional resources. These classroom materials are designed to engage students in learning and reinforce the standards being taught. Teachers may also share instructional resources they design through CIITS.


High School Graduation Requirements:
Visual and Performing Arts: students must earn 1 credit in a history and appreciation of visual and performing arts (HAVPA) or a standards-based specialized arts course based on the student's Individual Learning Plan.
