Accelerated Placement in Primary

Published: 8/5/2022 1:35 PM

​Under KRS 158.031, school districts may advance a student through the primary program when it is in the best educational interest of the student. A student who is at least five years of age, but less than six years of age, may be classified as other than a kindergarten student for the purpose of funding if the student is determined to have acquired the academic and social skills taught in kindergarten. Eligibility for accelerated placement is based upon a school team review of multiple sources of information about the child, and the review must include anecdotal records, student work samples, including evidence of self-reflection, and standardized test results (702 KAR 7:125). Local board approval is also required. Districts must complete and submit the form found on this webpage in the resources to KDE for approval in order to receive full funding. ​​
