Assessment

In accordance with US Department of Education (USED) guidance, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) will administer summative and other state assessments for school year 2021-2022.

Accountability

Due to the lack of testing data collected during the 2019-2020 school year and the unprecedented challenges during the 2020-2021 school year, the good-faith implementation of the state's accountability system as it is designed is not possible. Therefore, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) submitted a waiver request to USED in March 2021.

By waiving the accountability requirements until Kentucky can faithfully execute the expectations outlined in its state plan and state statutes, Kentucky is able to maintain a high-quality accountability system that promotes equity and trust.
