The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) anticipates the U.S. Department of Education (USED) to require states to implement school accountability and school identification requirements for the 2022-2023 school year.

Kentucky's assessment and accountability systems provide information about how districts, schools, and the state are meeting the needs of Kentucky's diverse student population. 


For the 2022-2023 school year, Kentucky will continue to administer federal and state-required assessments. The available 2021-2022 assessment data will be reported in the School Report Card.


The Kentucky Board of Education (KBE) has approved amendments to 703 KAR 5:270 to include changes required by Senate Bill 158 (2020). The regulation became effective November 30, 2021. ​Schools will be identified for federal accountability and school identification per Kentucky's ESSA State Plan and 202​1-2022 ​​COVID-19 Addendum Template once approved .
