College/Career Readiness for All

Published: 11/10/2015 10:35 AM

The vision of the Kentucky Board of Education is to ensure that all students reach proficiency and graduate from high school ready for college and careers. The board’s vision is informed by a changing economy that requires P-12 schools to prepare students for a more complex and competitive workplace.

Therefore, in February 2011, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) secured the Commonwealth Commitment from all districts to move 50 percent of their district's high school graduates who are not college and/or career ready to college and/or career ready between 2010 and 2015.
