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 2021-2022 COVID-19 Addendum Template once approved .
