2014 Overall Results: Wow!

Kentucky's 2014 accountability results, released at midnight, show an impressive one-year step up in how our schools serve our kids, with growth of four or more points at every level.  In Kentucky's accountability system, the overall score combines:

Achievement based on K-­‐PREP results in all subjects for all students
Gap Group based on K-­‐PREP results in all tested subjects for students who receive free or reduced price lunches, students with disabilities or limited English proficiency, and African-­‐American, Hispanic, and American Indian/Native American students
Growth results based on students’ progress in reading and mathematics
Readiness results based on Explore, Plan, ACT, and other evidence of readiness for college and career (used only for middle and high schools)
Graduation rates (for high schools only)
Program review results (added for the first time this year)

This year's improvement isn't all the improvement we need, but it's a really important showing of  how our students and our teachers can make rapid progress!
