Kentucky Academic Standards
Schools are required to use the
Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) as the basis of their curricula and instruction. The KAS for Social Studies 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.
Resources to guide districts in creating professional learning opportunities around the new Social Studies standards can be found on the Standards Resource webpage.

Standards Email Account if you have any questions.
