Kentucky Education Performance Report
Education in Kentucky
Each year, Kentucky schools publish School Report Cards (SRC) and post them on the Kentucky Department of Education Website. Not to be confused with student report cards, School and District
Report Cards provide information about each school and district, including test performance, teacher qualifications, student safety, awards, parent involvement, and much more.
The school and district report cards were established by statute, KRS 158.6453 (20), and regulation, 703 KAR 5:140. Additionally, the report card must incorporate the requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has several regulations which govern the administration of Kentucky's Assessment and Accountability Program. These regulations are supplemented with guides and manuals specific to each assessment.
School Report Cards help open the lines of communication between the school, the homes of its students, and its local community. They provide an opportunity for schools to highlight their strengths and explain what they are doing to improve. Parents can use School Report Cards when they visit their child's school for conferences and other meetings.
While the KDE Website is the most convenient and inexpensive way for the vast majority of Kentucky parents to receive this information, schools and districts are required upon request to print cards for parents lacking Internet access.
A high school graduation credit may be awarded in either of two ways: Carnegie Units (defined as at least 120 hours of instructional time in one subject) OR performance-based credits, defined at the local level regardless of the number of instructional hours. Districts and schools are accountable for making sure that each student’s educational program includes the minimum content standards as specified in Kentucky’s Program of Studies and provides the student with the opportunity to learn the standards including appropriate supports based on the individual learning needs of a student.

Student Math Scores
Annually, those persons who administer any part of a state assessment must complete training sessions regarding the assessments. The main regulations are the Administration Code for Kentucky's Educational Assessment Program and Inclusion of Special Populations in the State-Required Assessment and Accountability.Training concerning these regulations is updated annually to reflect regulation revisions and clarification of materials.
To foster understanding of the new Assessment and Accountability system, the Office of Standards, Assessment and Accountability (OSAA) has pulled together resources in one place needed by districts and schools.
Student Expenditure Dashboard
Although at this point the Kentucky Department of Education does not have a Title I, Part A allocation for the state or for districts, we can provide this planning tool that will help you arrive at an estimate of your allocation for the 2019-2020 school year. Keep in mind that all numbers provided here are tentative and are subject to change.
Teacher Payroll by County
The Division of Assessment and Accountability Support (DAAS) provides opportunities for District Assessment Coordinators (DACs), Building Assessment Coordinators (BACs), Directors of Special Education (DoSEs), Professional Development Coordinators and other interested individuals to receive information and practice with score interpretation, data analysis, test administration and the regulations governing Kentucky's Assessment and Accountability Program.
Many of these resources can be found on various pages throughout the KDE website. OSAA has attempted to make a single place to begin to answer the assessment and accountability questions which will arise from the public data release. These resources include Word documents, PDFs, links to vendor sites, videos and PowerPoints.
