Best Practices Spotlight

Published: 11/7/2022 9:19 AM
​This site recognizes and celebrates the Kentucky schools that embody strategies that result in students who are college and career ready. By sharing their methods, we hope to demonstrate that best practices in education can be achieved in every school.

​The Kentucky Department of Education recognized four schools and two school districts for identifying and sharing best practices. Each were publicly recognized and awarded a $500 check that can be used t​oward school improvement.
