Kentucky Model Curriculum Framework

Published: 3/2/2020 3:25 PM

​In March 2009, Kentucky’s General Assembly passed Senate Bill 1. Passage of this bill requires the design and development of a state-level model curriculum framework.​​


The Kentucky Model Curriculum Framework has been revised and is available on the Standards Resources webpage on KYstandards.org.


Section 1. KRS 158.6451​ (2)The Kentucky Board of Education shall disseminate to local school districts and schools a model curriculum framework which is directly tied to the goals, outcomes, and assessment strategies developed pursuant to this section and KRS 158.645 and 158.64​53. The framework shall identify teaching and assessment strategies, instructional material resources, ideas on how to incorporate the resources of the community, a directory of model teaching sites, alternative ways of using school time, and strategies to incorporate character education throughout the curriculum.”
