Kentucky Department of Education releases school, district report cards

GLASGOW — On Friday, Nov. 2, report cards for students and schools will be released by the Kentucky Department of Education.

The Glasgow Daily Times will do a series of stories during the next week based on the information in those reports.

According to a release from KDE, “report cards are important tools to reflect accountability and provide a measure of progress.”

This is the first year scores will be reported based in the new assessment and accountability system, Unbridled Learning: College & Career Readiness for All, according to KDE.

Expectations for the scores need to be grounded in the realization that academic standards are more rigorous,” the release stated. In other words, parents shouldn't be surprised if they see lower test results for their children.

Students are now going to be scored on a 0 to 100 scale, not the 0-140 scale of previous years.

Tests are also no longer under the Kentucky Core Content model, which had minimum requirements. The K-Prep (Kentucky Performance Rating for Education Progress) was used for current testing.

Schools will also be scored in five areas: achievement; gap (which accounts for students in specific sub-groups); growth (how a student is doing year to year); college/career readiness (middle and high schools); and graduation rate (high school only).

In order to better understand the new accountability model, KDE has included a page on its website to assist parents. To see school and district School Report Card data, visit www.openhouse.education.ky.gov.
