Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

The federal education law provides Kentucky more flexibility and allows the state to design a more effective accountability system that encourages improved learning opportunities, achievement and readiness for all students.

School Report Card

School and District Report Cards provide detailed information about each school and district, including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, awards, parent involvement and much more.

Continuous Improvement for GAP closure

Information, resources, and tools designed to assist schools and districts reduce the number of students scoring at the novice level and improve overall student achievement.
