Alternative Education Programs of Distinction

Published: 9/12/2023 3:27 PM

​In an effort to recognize the work of educators and programs that serve at-risk students, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) named eleven Alternative Programs of Distinction and recognized one program for an Exemplary Best Practice in the 2019-2020 school year. However, the impact of COVID-19 prompted KDE to suspend the Programs of Distinction selection process and it is currently undergoing a revision. KDE plans to resume the recognition process for the 2023-2024 school year.​​
