In an effort to reduce the impact on district time and services, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) coordinates the monitoring of its state and federal programs with a selected set of school districts annually.
Consolidated Monitoring provides districts an opportunity to review state and federal programs with an eye toward effective implementation and collaboration. Aside from individual program reports, districts are provided consolidated reports that represent an opportunity for collaboration among the programs.
