Priority and Focus Schools
4/16/2013 1:56 PM
As a condition of the Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver, the Kentucky Department of Education has identified Priority and Focus schools as referenced in 703 KAR 5:225. Forty-one schools have been identified through the School Improvement Grant (SIG) process and are now Priority Schools. Approximately 300 Focus schools have been identified based on 2011-2012 school year assessment data.
As we continue to build this page, it will be routinely updated to provide resources and supports for both Priority and Focus schools to ensure their students are proficient and prepared and graduate college/career ready. The Office of Next Generation Schools and Districts is committed to providing support and technical assistance to our Priority and Focus schools and always welcome feedback to improve our systems of support.
