**Standards Review and Revision process per Senate Bill 1 (2017)**

Senate Bill 1 (2017) calls for the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to implement a process for reviewing all academic standards and aligned assessments beginning in the 2017-18 school year. The current schedule calls for one or two content areas to be reviewed each year and every six years thereafter on a rotating basis. The rotation schedule began in the summer of 2017 by soliciting feedback on English language arts, mathematics and health/physical education standards.


Please visit the standards revision process timeline webpage for additional information.
