Published: 7/17/2013 5:38 PM

​With the passage of Senate Bill 1 in the 2009 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, the Commonwealth of Kentucky is poised at the beginning of a new era. As part of Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) and the Kentucky Board of Education (KBE), along with a myriad of other stakeholders has identified several strategies to help schools and districts meet the Commonwealth Commitment, a pledge taken by every school district in Kentucky to prepare high schools graduates to be college- and career- ready.

​The curriculum outlined here is designed for students who do not meet benchmark on the EPAS state assessments, specifically EXPLORE and ACT.

  • English - 18
  • Mathematics - 19
