Focus Schools/Focus Districts

Published: 2/4/2014 3:14 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. 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 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 schools and always welcome feedback to improve our systems of support.
