The Kentucky Academic Standards contain the minimum required standards that all Kentucky students should have the opportunity to learn before graduating from Kentucky high schools. The standards address what is to be learned, but do not address how learning experiences are to be designed or what resources should be used. The Kentucky Academic Standards and standards resources can be found on KYstandards.org.KYstandards.org homepage


This section of the KDE website provides information about the Minimum High School Graduation Requirements, the Kentucky Model Curriculum Framework, textbooks, Content/Program Areas (including Visual and Performing Arts, English Language Arts, Global Competency, Library Media, Mathematics, Practical Living and Career Studies, Primary/Preschool, Science, Social Studies, World Languages, and Writing), and Coordinated School Health.
