Primary 2000 and Beyond serves as a guide for primary education and offers information on legislation and resources that impact the implementation of Kentucky's primary program. The document can be used as a tool for answering questions to help provide a quality education for all of Kentucky's children.
 
Implementation of Core Standards and the Ungraded Primary Program document
The Kentucky Academic Standards, when implemented with the seven critical attributes of the Primary Program, ensure that each student is building the foundation for both academic and social success. The Implementation of Common Core Standards and the Ungraded Primary Program document is designed to be a tool that schools and districts may use to guide the implementation of the new standards, while honoring the critical attributes of the Kentucky Primary Program. 
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has aligned the Kentucky Early Childhood Standards for three-and-four-year-old children with the Kentucky Core Academic Kindergarten Standards in both Mathematics and English/Language Arts.
