​This site recognizes and celebrates the Kentucky schools that embody strategies that result in students who are college and career ready. By sharing their methods, we hope to demonstrate that Best Practices in Education can be achieved in every school.

Best Practices Spotlight

Each month the Best Practices team will spotlight some of the most promising best practices. All best practices that have been submitted and reviewed may be found in the searchable database.

Wow! Great job!!

Each school or district was publicly recognized and awarded a $500 check that can be used toward school improvement.
