The Combined Curriculum Document (CCD) is a resource created by the Kentucky Department of Education to show the connection between the Academic Expectations (what students should know and be able to do as a result of their school experience), the Program of Studies-now known as Kentucky's Core Academic Standards (the minimum required content standards students shall be taught to meet the high school graduation requirements), and the Core Content for Assessment Version 4.1 (the content that is appropriate to be included on the state assessment).
The CCD was created as a response to requests from districts to produce a resource that included curriculum and assessment documents on the same page, showing the connection and relationship between them. (Note: only Science and Social Studies are displayed because they have not been revised as of August 2012. These areas are assessed via K-PREP.)
The high school CCD is not displayed. The instructional standards for Science and Social Studies (formerly the Program of Studies) have been incorporated into the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS).
