Kentucky Academic Standards Overview Page

What are the Kentucky Academic Standards?

The centerpiece of Kentucky's education reform effort is its vision of what students should know and be able to do as a result of their school experience. Every aspect of the reform movement is designed to promote student attainment of these goals and to measure our progress in helping them to do so.

Example Kentucky Academic Standards: Mathematics

Students understand space and dimensionality concepts and use them appropriately and accurately.

How do I Find the Kentucky Academic Standards?

Rathern than delineating academic expectations by specific academic subjects, Kentucky has identified six learning goals that relate to productive engagement with society (e.g., use basic communication and mathematics skills for purposes and situations they will encounter throughout their lives). Goals are divivded by elementary, middle, and high school.
