2009's Senate Bill 1 called for Kentucky to launch new standards, assessments, and accountability provisions during the 2011-12 school year. With those deadlines now getting close, last week saw several key elements move forward. My post earlier today mentioned the choice of a vendor for key parts of the assessment system. Later this week, I'll also share a summary of the new edition of the accountability formula that will use those tests and some developments around end-of-course-testing. The news is just complex enough that I'm going to split it over several days, rather than pile it on all at once.
